Once all the nut inserts were in place, the masking tape was removed and the sliders were supported by screw jacks. The top portion of the sliders bolt in place with stainless-steel button-head Allen bolts and washers. A special gasket must be positioned carefully as the Allen bolts are tightened. This can be very tricky without an extra set of hands to help re-align the gasket as the slider is tightened. Once all the rocker panel bolts were in place, three additional through-bolt holes were drilled on the underside of the body. This requires that the interior carpet is temporarily pulled aside between the seat and the rocker panel. With the final mounting holes in place, three long through-bolts were added to clamp the bottom of the sliders to the underside of the body.
