Step 1: Place aluminum backbone into groove on inside of Storm plastic so that it fits snugly. Install one plastic 'U'-clip on curved/bar-end side of Storm plastic as shown above. Do not fully tighten screws yet. NOTE: You will NOT use the two mounting holes on the straight portion of the guard (bottom left in the above picture). These holes are provided for single-sided mounting of Storm plastics on tubular handlebars.
