When you do it use a hole saw to make the end of the notch by the mid bearing. Then just cut the tunnel out. Doing it that way will be stronger. Cutting a notch and leaving it square will cause a stress riser in the corners which can lead to cracks and faliure.

Oh and it looks nicer. Thats just an opinion though, was trying to stick to the facts. ;)
ur right though..it would put stress in the corners...no reason why not to try to prevent as much as u can...

Ok cool, I'm thinking If I trim the upper cups on the rear bags that may help, figure that would be a good idea to try first, I only need to go down in the back about another 2inches or so to be level when im layed out, but if I wanna go lower I'm guessing frame notch would be the next move, I appreciate the info man
