1) First of all make the dimensions on to the alu - plate.

2) Cut the plate to the perfect size.

3) Drill the holes needed for the seat.

4) Make grooves out of the holes.

1) Take a fiew sheets of paper and make a waved structure on to the seat.

2) When you became a symmetric waved form on paper, you take over the dimensions on to a alu - plate 1000 x 254 x 1,2 mm.

3) Bend the drawed lines to the waved form.

4) finely you became a plate with 4 waves on it.

5) Cut the plate in half, so you got 2 plates with 2 waves on it.

2) Drill 4 holes of 3 mm on the first flat side of the waved plate through the seat and the waved plate.

3) When the first 4 holes are drilled than you take the rivet gun en shoot the waved plate together to the seat.

4) Repeat these steps for the other flat side next to it.

5) Take the other waved plate for the right side of the seat.

6) Drill 4 holes of 3 mm on the first flat side of the waved plate through the seat and the waved plate.

7) When the first 4 holes are drilled than you take the rivet gun en shoot the waved plate together to the seat.

8) Repeat these steps for the other flat side next to it.

9) Now you got the 2 waved plates fitted on to the seat and the middel is not fit yet.

10) Drill 4 holes of 3 mm through these 2 ends of the waved plates and also through the seat.

11) Take the rivet gun and shoot the plates together.

Now the waved plate is fitted on to the seat.
