    Just noticed the top rails on my flat are much wider than the originals. The rear trunion wont even fit in there snug.
    I was just wondering how I can tell where to file off the top rails where the carrier slides

    Did the rear trunion, but I messed up my carbide dremel tip. Good thing I bought a handful at Walmart last night for $1.50 a piece on clearance :coold:

    Anyone have a special technique on how to locate the rivet holes for the trunions?
