Those are 16 ga. because we did not want to use screws to hold them up on the bottom. There is a bead of caulk about an 1" in from the inside edge on the glide top side for water protection then it go's under the back 90 degree edge installed from the factory and is re screwed on the sides only the stiffness of the gauge holds it up tight. If I was to do it again I would do it out of 18 ga, 20 ga might not hold up on it's own with out rippling. I think 18 ga would be stong enough but 16 ga. not much different but stronger. The slides runs very smooth in and out. It was a copy of the Majestic plastic with the welding on the inside corner to form the 45 degree. So the whole out side bottom and sides are smooth, can't catch anything. It is tight against the bottom, no flex at all in the movement. We will see how it works out. So far so good we ran it in and out at least 30 times. I thank Trevor from Australia for the idea.
