GHQ and who ever can help me with this problem.

I positioned the aft vertical piece as shown in the picture provided by GHQ. The piece does not sit right.. So I oriented 180 degrees so that the bottom portion that is chamfered is facing aft. Iit fit perfectly. It also seems to match photos that i saw of the actual vehicle.

Regardless, in either case, I cannot get the bridge to sit flush to rest on the aft supports. The aft Cross member sits on top of the Aft vertical standing piece. if I push the bridge forward to rest more on the forward support mount, the forward cross member of the bridge interferes with the center structure on the forward part of the vehicle.

What am I missing? I cannot get it to sit correctly as shown on this site or matching pictures of the actual vehicle. is the aft vertical piece suppose to lean forward when the bridge is stowed?

IF anyone has put one together, can the post pictures or explain what is messed up? Please help. this is majorly frustrating.

So, no one else has purchased the Titan Bridge Layer and tried to put it together? Or am I the only one who has had issues. I know I am not the smartest tool in the shed but I can't be the only one.. Please, someone else tell me they are having a problem.. anyone... GHQ, any input would be helpful.

I will try and post some pictures of the issue I am having.

Paul,

Thanks for the Pictures. I think I have the pieces fit in the spots intended. Based on the picture GHQ now shows. The problem is, the Bridge will not rest on the back supports. When you try to install the bridge, the cross remember on the bridge is obstructed by the Aft vertical piece. This causes the bridge to be higher in the back and prevents it from making contact with the aft support attached just above the engine. The only think I can figure is that the Aft vertical center piece must tilt back or GHQ some how either made the cross member too thick or too far back.

Maybe I can trim some of the cross member.. Evil or Very Mad

I really can't see how they got theirs to fit together properly unless they left it out.

I gave up.....I installed the app vertical piece tilted slightly back toward the back of the chassy.
