    Default quick easy question...rail kit length

    What is the length on the rails in rail kits for BBC? How many mounting holes through the stringers usually, and how far apart?

    Each kit needs to be made for the application
    IMO

    You can do a 32" rail, thats pretty short. Bolt spacing is up to you, if you already have holes in the stringers try and pick those up.

    Mine in the Brendella are 48" but the UFO II is 106" and I kick myself for not making my Brendellas that long. The long ones give a great solution for mounting seats, ect....

    Iff'n I was to do it again (and I may some day), I would go the longer the better

    I'd probably run them all the way to the front seats, would make mounting things alot easier and you can make cutouts whever you want to lighten the weight even more.
