Sorry Vinny, no idea, they were on the car when I bought it. I'd imagine the usual drill some holes and then cut with a suitable saw.

Apparently (perhaps others can advise) at one time there was considerable debate on the slots in the past? Have had several people comments on my slots :shock:

Mine has slots as does dels. I think at one time they came with slots pre-cut.

The RAI on the D3 had slots cut out...the one on the D4 doesn't. Couldn't be bothered to cut them either, in the end :?

Garry - actually it should read "couldn't be bothered to get Mark to cut them out when I got him to fit the RAI for me..." :lol: (why do the work when there is always someone else around to do it for you... :whistle: :lol: )
