I want to install the upper UR braces tomorrow. However, I cannot find any instructions anywhere.

Does anyone know where to get instructions? Or, if not instructions, just torque specs, whether I need to put washers/bolts, etc?

Both are pretty straight forward, don't really need instructions for either. Both took like mins to install (5 for the front and 10 for the rear)

Okay, that is what I thought too. But, are there any torque specs? Or is it "as tight as a hand tool can get it" or "use an impact wrench"?

"Tight" works. Otherwise, I believe you're looking at 25 Nm (17 ft-lb). I think the bolts are M8? Can anyone confirm?

Really simple install. Just be ready to crawl in your trunk.

Truth. And go to the hardware store and buy some extra matching screws/washers/nuts [or at least ones that would work] as you WILL drop AT LEAST one set while doing the trunk job.

I would tighten everything down as tight as you comfortably can. After driving 100 miles or so, just go back and check/tighten everything.
