The lower second panel h as three rivets on the slope-sheet line. BELOW: BN 534992 center side detail. Notice the center posts rivet pattern is alternating. The tub had only one band on it with rivet detail. BOTTOM: BN 534992 right side detail.

There are six rungs on this corner but note how they are spaced out to the top chord (compare to the left side photo).
