I am getting two packages this coming Thursday but won't get them home until about 6:00 or 6:30 pm. Sunset here is 7:50, followed by 30 minutes of twilight. Is there a time when it is too late in the day to install them? If I have to wait until Friday, is there an optimal time of day for installation?

I would wait wait until midday Friday (when it is above 50) to install them. It it is raining I would wait until Saturday when your forecast says it will be dry and warmer. If it is cold you may have more problems then waiting a day. The package should be fine for 12 to 36 hours if they still have some syrup since they have already been in the package for a few days.
