RPS fixings

Postby Mattwarner » Fri Feb 23, 2018 3:00 pm

How does the RPS attach to the deck? I bought a project which came in bits and filled the old deck holes with epoxy and assume they screw in but what size/length screws?

TIA

Which style of RPS are you talking about, what model/year?

Got any photos of the bits?

Hi Phil,

From an archived thread:

my 1978 Montauk and the distance is 18" from the seat cushion to the white part of the console.


There should be backing material in the floor.

Review this thread with Tom Clark and LHG's input for installing in the floor:
