Put the "rods" through the holes in the floor,
remembering to put the turnbuckles on BEFORE you
thread the rods through the holes (how do I know
that?) and pull it "pretty tight" but not "real,
real, tight." Tie the monofilament off "real,
real close" to the floor. Now on the spots where
the monofilament crosses from one "rod" to the
next (you DID use just one piece, or two if
there's four rods, didn't you?) and slide a piece
of. . . .something . . .under it on top of the
floor. That pulls the 'rods' up through the

Obviously, this works best in closed cars . . .

What successful methods have the list members
used to pull the "rods"
really tight with monofilament? I agree with Al
that wire rods simply do will not last straight,
despite the
best of intentions and care.
