G) Slip the joining wire across the fastner and using pliers bend both ends around (forty-five degrees).


H) The mat needs to be tightened up until there is a slight sag in chain at the middle (approximately forty millimetres from the horrizontal of the chassis to the horrizontal of the chain).

J) Lastly, when you are attaching the skirt assemblies, there should be no gaps between the rubbers and the belt. If you notice any daylight appearing over the years please make sure these are moved down so they are firmly against the mat.
