Default 29 RPU Sill plates and brackets

I am assembling a RPU mostly from after market sheet metal and need some guidance on the installation of the sill plates and brackets.
The sill plates are somewhat obvious but I don't see how to position and fasten the brackets to mount the sill plates to.
Any help apperciated. Pictures would be great also.


Thanks Richard

Richard,

I have some pics that might help, they are in an email and I am not able to upload to the site yet. Haven't taken the time to learn how. Email me in a private message and I will forward.

Steve

Steve,
The easiest way to post pictures is to open an free account with www.photobucket.com. Upload your photos to photobucket. Copy the photobucket IMG code for your picture and paste it here.

How are the brackets fastened on.
Rivets I assume?
How many?

Mine are spot welded, I would think you could fasten any way you find will hold, as once it is all together, it will never be seen
