Why have them at all if you’re not planning to race much, and even then it’s questionable if you will ever need to alter the track position? In any case, I’m just looking at the beautiful decking you have, and feel it would be a shame to ruin the finish. At least if you mount them between the slats at the front benches to a thick piece of ply attached underneath, then you can always get rid of them without marking any brightwork. There are pics and suggestions from Uncle Al on the Whiffle site.
