In the image there are 3 tubes attached across LFS with holes drilled for seat mounting. The holes are drilled on a square cross section tube of dimensions 20x20x2 mm. So, I wanted to know if using a rod of thickness 2mm instead of a tab of 2.3 mm thickness is allowed or not. If yes, do I need to use a sleeve for a square rod as per rule for drilled members. Also is it allowed to keep holes beyond 1in distance from weld in this case.?
Though the arrangement does not exactly follow the rules, the arrangement is still quite sturdy since the seat now has a support of 4 members including the USM
