SW Top Install Question

Is there supposed to be some kind of metal spacer or such between the side bottoms and the tub where the bolts attach the two? Mine has nothing and it doesn't feel like the top is on very secure as the seal lets it wiggle around. I think I am missing some thing there to make the connection solid.

Update!

I found this picture of what looks like a spacer in the corner. Is this stock and where can I find them if they are?

Yeah, there is a set of "pegs" that the top sits on. That being said, I just bolted mine on. I know LenB did the same thing. Its harder to get the top lined up, but it still works fine. It needs to be down pretty tight, that seal will compress dramatically and there should only be a small gap between the top and the tub.

Looks like I will give up the search for these "pegs" and just bolt her down the best I can. Thanks!

Yes, I also just bolted it down on top of the rubber seal...seems pretty solid when you wrench it down snug...
