Full installation instructions included with purchase. You will need a heavy soft-faced hammer (48 oz. or so), a good vise and a heavy or stoutly mounted work bench. We stand behind our products 100% - if you are not satisfied with the back when you receive it, we'll refund your purchase price within 14 days.
Note: No refunds for backs that have been installed, modified or otherwise damaged by the purchaser. The backs are hand made and so the sizes are approximate.
