Side detail, where I had to cut the trim to get a good seat for the bracket. I used 14-2 2" hex-head metal screws, not self-tapping, to get through the wood framing that is between the bottom skin and the I-beam.
Front detail. This was the show stopper last year. If you put the bracket up against the seam, the bolts are 1/8" inch from the edge of the I-beam. I imagined the would rip right through. I took a 5/8" thick block of bamboo flooring I had laying around and used is to build a level platform for the bracket, and cut some of the plastic underbody away. I used construction glue to hold the block in place, bored holes through it, and again used the same 14-2 screws. Nice fit. Coated the entire thing with black Rustoleum (and got some rusting spots while I was down there).
