  1. Loaded the '17 Smart yesterday. Obviously the footprint is different from the Gen 1 Diesel so the tiedown and ratchets need to be relocated. The ratchets were thinking of welding a plate to the bottom of the existing chocks because doubled up deck plate under doesn't come close enough to the outside of the deck to give double thickness to fasten to or through. The 'D' rings put on initially, well only one works out and that is the right rear or the one closest to the passengers side fairing. None of the others work out. So the question is, what type of tie down system to use? Things have evolved since 'D' rings. I'm thinking of a type of track, maybe along the lines of BMZero's. There are a few online one system comes in 8 or 13" wide by 30" long pcs which would cover existing, maybe, and provide a more flexible system. The old 'D'ring system is raised above the deck by maybe an 1/8 or more so that needs to be taken into consideration if I want to cover any of them up. I'd rather not grind welds and make a hatchet job out of it to remove existing and welding from top or bottom would probably melt the deck coating. Nothing is carved in stone so ideas are welcome. Thanks
