    Recently ordered some car parts from china, unfortunately the instructions sheet is completely in chinese as well as some blurry black and white installation pictures.
    Wondering if anyone here can read and translate chinese to english?
    I tried some software like the latest version of adobe acrobat which can scan editable documents, it didnt work too well because I got nothing but gibberish when I tried to copy any of the kanji.
    First page just seems to be package contents and schematic, second page is bracket installation.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    You could hope someone with Chinese skills and a baseline level of technical knowledge wanders by, it would not be entirely unexpected on this site. You might have better luck asking how do I do [blah] on [model + year] of car though. I can not quite figure out what it is though so I can not come at it from that way.
    Most of that just seems like a screw/bolt usage guide for someone that has never used bolts before -- you have some machine screws/bolts, some pvc washers, some normal washers and I am guessing some split ring/spring washers.

    There is an app available on both Google Play and Apple Store that'll take pictures of text and translate, but I've heard the translations can be iffy at best. There's also sites where you can ask people for translations, with areas dedicated to specific languages.

    Then again, you could just google installation for whatever parts you ordered. I can't imagine the process would be too different.

    And done. Sorry for the wait.
    I may have taken a few "liberties" with the translation but it should be understandable.
    I have 0 experience with cars so sorry if I got some of the technical terms wrong.

    Just got it installed http://gbatemp.net/threads/things-you-recently-bought-or-got.347639/page-130#post-5160399
    Thanks for taking the time to translate the pages

    funny enough the seller of the item finally sent the "english" instructions
    your translation is far better (though at least I got color pictures from it)
