Yes, those are the instructions I went by to mount the supports. One of their tech people has actually replied to me that the reason the lid is not closing is that their instructions are meant for a 3/4" inch back wall and with my trim its making mine too thick. Other suggestions I have had from other forums included cutting out notches so the supports could mount to the back of the poplar trim, mounting a small piece of the 1X4 poplar to the underside of the lid to attach the supports to offset the thickness of the back wall, and then to just move the mount down further on the back wall losing some of the opening space when fully opened but allowing the lid to close. Any thoughts on those? Keep in mind, I am just a weekend/after work DIYer building this for my son, can't go too complicated on me here!!
