A spare pair of hands would help (though I managed it on my own).
It is fiddly, but probably if I can do it without wrecking anything, anyone can; helps perhaps to know it IS possible...? - good luck
Thank you DrPat much appreciated, ....

I should have asked earlier with my previous technical request post, but I bought my footboard kit from E-bay and when I finally got around to fitting them I noticed that the spacers between the boards and the scrapers were missing.

What do the spacers look like/made of do I need to buy some or can they be knocked up by an amateur ?
