Step 6: Aluminium Sides: Marking Out Holes

Tools; Scriber / Centre Punch / Hammer

Use a scriber to mark out the two holes for the bolts to hold the steel rods in place, they must not be too close to the edge and you need one rod at low front and the other at high back. Centre punch the marks to be drilled.
