Advice and pointers to replace tower pads on 05 Xstar

I had new pads made of ABS for my tower to swap out the crap stock pads that squeeze out. Can you give me any pointers on how to change them? It seems pretty straight forward, but don't want a two hour job to turn into a full day because I miss something stoooopid.

Mine need replacing too. Where did you get your new ones made? I could use a source for that, I was going to make my own from a piece of truck mud flap material but ABS sounds much better. I only need the front ones.

You should be able to have someone hold the allen head of the bolts while you remove the nuts from underneath. Do one leg at a time, maybe support the leg with a strap to a garage rafter if needed? May not be necessary to do that if you're careful.
