First take some coat hanger wire and bend it at a 90 degree angle or as close to that as you can get it. Make sure the wire gauge is thin enough so that when adhered to the vertical segment of the bolt sled, it doesn't protrude out of those brackets. You'll see what I mean it a little bit. My wire was a bit too thick, and that will be addressed later.
Now cut it so its the same size as in the following picture.
Drill a hole in the bolt sled as shown to allow the wire to pass through.
This is how the wire will be epoxied in.
Do the following step if your wire, like mine, protrudes from the vertical nubs that house it. If it was left protruding then your bolt sled won't slide properly across the LS shell. Basically just shave down the plastic where the wire will be resting. I just used the same bit on my dremel that I used initially to drill the hole, and just slid the tip across the plastic.
Now just epoxy it in.
Now do the other side. Sand down any overhanging epoxy. I will do that once the epoxy dries.
After looking at some broken bolt sleds, I decided mine needed further reinforcements.
I just, as before, sanded down a slot for the wire and glued it in. The slot was necessary so the clips could still go into the sled. I noticed my previous reinforcements didn't protect a break I saw in an LS in a different thread.
So, what do y'all think?
