Windrestrictor will respond.

from their site:

Complete installation instructions will be sent out with every order. These instructions will include a step by step guide with photos included. We have made all of our instructions as simple as possible because we know how important it is to the customer. Some of our top selling products even come with an installation video link noted where you will be able to watch us go through a complete installation before you get started. Also, we are available by phone Monday - Friday and oftentimes on Saturday just incase you need any assistance. 90% of our customers install our products themselves and 10% will take them do their local dealerships or auto accessory shop. Light mechanical knowledge is required such as being able to turn a screw driver or attaching two wires together but we guarantee it's nothing advanced. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to hear more about the specific installation you are inquiring about. We are always excited to hear from you!

I've seen all that.

in reading the various threads on installation it basically talks to removing a couple screw/bolts and replacing them with longer ones. I can't find on my R171 where those screw/bolts are. I've seen pictures but I don't have bolts where the pictures show. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong place.

if you look at the 3rd picture it shows 2 bolts/screws. I don't have any in that location.

edit: found this, looks like my answer
"There is no drilling required, or modifications that need to be made to your roadster. The bracket takes out all of the work. Simply remove your speaker (console) in the center, mount the bracket and put it back on. Then it's as simple as 2 screws with covers. Very simple but sturdy mounting method."
