Don't you love fitting those diagonals in when the horizontal tube can't be removed. FUN FUN FUN
Yea so what is the trick because I wanted to kill myself after fucking up the first diagonal twice?! I go from too long to get it in there and then once I get it to go in, it's 3/16 short. I haven't tacked anything so the tubes are just sitting in there so some of the gaps look kind of big. One or two gaps are pretty big. Nothing a big mig dong can't fill...

The last one I did was the passenger side lower and it fits and looks like it fits wayyyyy better than the other 3. #3 was decent too. The first one was actually attempt number 3 and then the second one I did was P side upper and it came out like absolute dog shit and I'm still beating my brain hourly if I want to redo it. I think one of the gaps is ginormous but I think it's do-able... I don't know. I spent waaaayyyy too much time doing those 4 diagonals. Those and the roof diagonals were definitely by far the hardest to do. Very tedious. To the contrary, the A to B floor tube with double 90 degree notches was pry the easiest. The passenger side I did in about 35 minutes from cutting the stick to notch to fit.

What i have done it cut the pointed piece off on the notch and then put it back on when the tube is finally fit in place. You'll get a gap in the tube the width of cutoff wheel so easy to get full penetration.
Ok. Good to know. Thanks brother.
