Installation of Rivco Center Stand
I've had my Rivco Center Stand sitting in a box for the last few months, and finally found the time to try and install it. I didn't have any trouble getting the two "stop" brackets installed, but I'm having trouble getting the bolts identified as "shoulder bolts" through the existing holes in the frame.
It feels like the holes in the frame are just a touch too small to get the bolts through. Has anyone else encountered this problem? I tried spraying some lubricant on the bolts, but that didn't help. I also contemplated getting a file and shaving down the finish on the frame inside the holes, but it seems like that would just be an invitation for rust.
