Drilling the holes for the Rib seat/bed

Following on from my earlier blog entry when I fitted the Rib seat under body bracket and drilled the two central rearmost holes, now it’s time to drill the others.

With the furniture in place (albeit not fixed, but in the exact/right position) I fitted the two rear bolts (just the bolts, not the nuts) then lined up the seat so it was square and also ensured the seat didn’t touch the NS wall or the furniture, both in seat and bed mode. I then marked the location of the remaining holes on the wooden floor then drilled them through.

As you’ll see in the next photos my estimates (the yellow dots) weren’t too far off!

This is the NSR hole.

This is the OSR hole which travels through the crossmember so needs the longer bolt to be used.

This is the NSF hole.

This is the OSF hole above the exhaust.

This is the front centre hole, which is the hardest to see since it’s inside the swinging arm suspension mount!

This is a picture with all the bolts in place.
