Tub stiffeners.

So, in the category of "I should have taken a photo beforehand" (which I'm sure there will be more of sadly), I got a pile of stuff back from galvanizing including the tub lateral stiffeners. What I don't recall is if the small black high-density foam squares were between the tub floor and the stiffener or between the stiffener and the chassis.

There seems to be a gap between the stiffener and the tub floor, but this could just be sag from sitting so long without them riveted in place. I just want to be sure before I put things back together incorrectly.

Thanks.

OK, that was my gut feeling, so as long as the stiffeners look un-warped then just flex things to fit? I guess it's time to track down some 3/16th closed end pop-rivets. I've been contemplating using round-head solid rivets everywhere possible but I'm now thinking that might be more work than needed in the non-visual locations.

Thanks.

Yes, they probably warped in galvanizing. Once it is all bolted/riveted together it should be fine. The correct rivits are flathead hammer rivets IIRC (I know they are on a series, truck, I would have to look again at a D90/D110).

Yeah, that would be the correct ones, but I'm planning on putting in a drawer system anyway, so if closed end pop rivets are strong enough I'm tempted. Of course I could also just bolt it through but there will be a time without the drawer in and that wouldn't be as nice.
