Go slow, double check everything before you make a hole and please use Dzus fasteners.
If you go down and the bodywork is held on with tiewraps it will explode.

When you are drilling.. Make sure you dont get any fiber glass anywhere on your skin. That will hurt like a !!.
Now installing them? Make sure to throw them on and take a look where the mounting points are and where they are going to attach.

Got mine last week and installed them for the first time as well.
I mounted the upper on the bike first, then mounted the lower.
Lined up where the upper and lower met and threw the DZUS fastener clips on where I wanted them to go.
Mark where you're going to drill and go through them.
Worked pretty well for me. As for the fasteners, it'll depend on your bike. I bought 6 from Houston Superbikes ($3/each) and only ended up using 5 of them. My right side where the upper and lower met was a lot wider than my left.

mount upper first, then the lower. drill small holes, then use a step bit and work your way up to the correct hole size.
armour bodies usually fits reallllly well. so you shouldn't have a problem at all bro. if you do, feel free to bring the bike by my shop and i'll help ya out with it.

I would think as with most fiber composites it helps to put a piece of tape over the area where you are going to drill your hole. This helps to make a cleaner hole IMO. Also less mess and fibers to stick yourself with.
