After the glue on the Carcass dries, we can drill the holes for the lift and the Vent holes.   The glue should take a few hours to be rock solid.

- Remove the top assembly from the Firgelli lift to make it a little lighter.

- Position the Firgelli lift in the center of "C1".   Mark the 4 holes with a pencil.  Remove the Lift.  

- Drill 4 holes as straight and accurately as you can. 

- Drill multiple vent holes with a 1" bit as shown in the pictures below.  These holes allow component heat to leave the left side component cabinet AND allow your wires and cables to pass around the cabinet.

- Secure the lift to "C1" with nut's and bolts.  I used a carriage bolt, nut, 2 smooth washers and 2 lock washers on each hole.

- Plug in your lift and test it's operation with the remote and manual switch.
