Ran the all-thread up until everything was wedged against the frame, then tightened the nuts down on the beam.
Appreciate the pics and description.
Let me ask, why use the wood on top instead of another set of brackets?
I'm trying to figure out how I want to do my mod by gaining knowledge from other's mods.
