Here's the ones I built.











Materials used:

1. (2) 68" long 2 1/2" x 1 1/2" 1/8" rectangular tubing for the sliders
2. (4) 9-10" long 1" x 1 1/2" rectangular tubing 3/16" for the supports + about 8" of the same material cut into 1" - 2" pieces to connect the sliders to the pinch seam and supports.
3. (4) 3" x 4" 3/16" flat plate for the frame mounts
4. (2) 1" x 48" 1/4" flat bar for the pinch seam.

Directions:

1. I cut out the four 3/16" frame mounts, and drilled four holes in them. I then marked where I wanted to mount them on the frame, drilled the holes in the frame, and tapped them. I then bolted the plates to the frame using 3/8" grade 8 hardware.

2. I drilled 6 or 7 holes along each piece of 1/4" flat bar for the pinch seams, clamped them to the pinch seams, drilled out the pinch seams, then bolted the flat bar to the pinch seams using 5/16" grade 8 hardware.

3. I held each 1" x1 1/2" support in place between the plates on the frame and the flat bar on the pinch seam, and measured the angles I needed to cut with a magnetic angle finder. I then cut the angles, and trimmed the supports so that they lined up with the face of the 1/4" flat bar bolted to the pinch seam.

4. Tack weld the supports to the frame plates and 1/4 flat bar bolted to the pinch seam. Cut some short sections of the left over 1" x 1 1/2" rectangular tubing, and tack weld them to the face of the supports/pinch seam flat bar.

5. Cut the sliders to 68" with whatever angle you'd like on the ends. I think I did 22.5 degrees. Tack weld the sliders in place.

6. After everything is tacked in place, remove the sliders and finish welding them up. I added a few 1" x 1/2" rectangular tubing supports between the 1/4" flat bar and sliders. I also capped the sliders.

Building off the mounts like this gave me a perfect fit.

When I get around to it I plan on building boat sides. I think the first set of sliders will work peferct for those and will save me from doing some measuring.

Since there's a few threads asking about rock sliders, I figured I'd put this TTT.
