The support tubes are notched for the slider end, and we cut the frame end down to length with a chop saw. A ratchet strap holds the slider tight and locks the support tube in place for a “no gaps” weld. We primed and painted the sliders, but you could powdercoat them and then spray-paint just the final weld to the frame.
