5167Re: Snapdeck Kidseat pics
- Jul 2, 2008Hi,
More details on the construction please.
I see what you did with the P-clamps, this is to ensure a solid
connection between (un) snap deck and the V-racks. How did you join
the 12mm ply together, is this just glued if not what kind of
fasteners, it looks clean. Maybe just post another photo of a close
up of the inside of one of the seat would be enough.
Thanks again for posting this, it gets me a little closer to my 2 kid
