    Nice work. Wish my boards looked as good.
    Fwiw, you can get those bolts from MB if you are freaky for being original.
    I just used elevator bolts from local hardware store..

    Thanks for sharing this, I can spot the rear pivot-point on the bed-frame, how about the front, is it positioned somewhere around the rear panel of the fuel-tank?

    Thx

    I found some flat head allen cap screws with the proper head diameter, the bolts are a little bigger but I'll drill the holes to fit :-)

    Yep your right on the money, it sits about even with the rear of the fuel tank.

    You're posting early tonight, you must be slacking off on the job!

    That stuff looks great! It's really going to set it off.
