Very good job Bruce. The pics really help a lot too. Like I said in earlier post, I will definitely be doing this mod on my WJ2809W.

Doesn't the 27VRL have drawers on the end of the cabinet where the extension goes? From what I've seen, the 27VRL extension must be the removable type that hooks into the brackets on the side of the cabinet. A drop down extension would appear to be a little inconvenient on that unit.

Yes, on both counts. Drawers and brackets above drawers. Hasn't been often we needed the addl. counter space

Well, I finished it up today by installing the bumper on the side of the cabinet. Here's a picture showing every part needed for this modification, including the bumper for the leg hardware:

Looks great, I wish mine would be so easy. My counter top is wider than the extension so where I would need to mount the brackets there is no real support. I really want to do this mod so I will probably try to find a matching piece of wood to put across the face of the cabinet to add more support. The other thing I noticed is that extension is fairly heavy, are you worried about it bouncing down the road? I think along with the bumper some way of holding it in it's storage position might be needed.

Mine is just like yours.I removed the L shaped brackets & replaced with 4" hinges cut down on one side to fit the slotted brackets. Will not travel with it in place but will put it on when set up & just fold & unfold as needed. When folded down it will be out of the way, but there & ready for use.
