I'll post a pic of what it looks like...They cut the trim to install and it's just not a good clean cut. They "hack" out 2 U shapes out of the trim leaving unpainted aluminum to show. I don't see why they wouldn't have had the bolts ready to go and exposed from factory (no cutting needed). I bet they'd sell a lot more boxes and ladders if we could just bolt them on.
You'll see after I post the pic...

as much as i thought the side box was a bit of a gimmick, a number of posts on the FB owners group is maybe swaying me to
fit one after market Whistle

That doesn't sound like they actually followed the installation instructions - or measured incorrectly and then butchered the trim to align the bolts?

if those are now surplus to requirements, i would remove the captive nuts and put on a new piece of trim to hide the
holes. It looks like they measured once and cut twice yet another pommie bar steward down under

It's in the fitting instructions to slot them.
