Rush topper hardware cleanup kit Shop highlight

The subtle details matter!

Much of the factory hardware (black screws, silver washers, silver nuts) clash with the plastics & artwork of the beautiful Rush topper. I've sourced gold-colored hardware and some silver & black hardware also to better match the topper colors & artwork, and have meticulously gone through each of the different size and length fasteners that I think should be changed. All parts are an exact swap in size/length, except the screws in the nuts on the gears -- these are shorter to reduce thread protrusion for a cleaner, flush fit.

The kit includes 60 parts in gold, silver, and black, including a few extra to allow for personalization/customization to your preference. **Also now available is an oiled-rubbed copper colored knob to replace the bright orange one! This item is optional, so you may order the kit with or without it.

Reference the map in the images below for recommended locations of the hardware.

Testimonial from kit tester:
"The gears especially look better. The topper is really, really easy to work on for this mod. The gears come off with a single screw and the rest of the three hardware sets on each gear can be swapped at a workbench and put back on. The front face hardware all goes into tapped holes so there is no tiny backing hardware to lose. Very easy" ... except for two black screws (behind the bottom corners of the radio) that are a little more difficult to remove -- these can be replaced or left as-is at your discretion, since the radio face may require removal to access them. These may or may not be visible from the player's perspective depending on your height.


FAQ:
Q: I don't see much difference in the before & after pics, what the heck is this?
A: Look closely at the screws, nuts, and washers on the gears, on the radio, around the albums, and mounting brackets. It's amazing how much better they blend in when the colors match or complement better.

Q: Why should I pay so much for what's basically just a bag of small hardware?
A: Much of this hardware isn't common and/or isn't available in small quantities -- you'll only need about ~5-20 of each! Purchasing minimum quantity of every different type would be much more expensive. Plus, I've saved you all the time of figuring out what sizes & lengths you need, and what should go where. You're receiving a fully prepared kit and simply install it according to the instructions! Your purchase covers the cost of the hardware and the time I've spent developing the kit (and packing each one) to save you time and effort.

Q: What if I disagree with what looks good in certain places?
A: Some extra hardware is provided in this kit to allow for some customization. At the end of the day, it's your game -- so if you think something looks better with OEM hardware than with the items I've included, then just leave them out!

Q: What tools will I need?
A: Basic tools like a screwdriver, and 5/16 wrench/socket. That's it!


As with all my mods, user accepts all risks inherent with installation & use of these products.
