Transport upgrade - Wheel base

After loading up R5 & sledge into the back of the car, I noted that if the piece of wood that the wheels are attached to was removed, then it would actually still fit in, without having to remove it every time I loaded the sledge.
Close, but that's because of the extra
thickness of the wheel platform.
See picture below.

The problem was that the t-nuts for the securing bolts, wouldn't be able to be fitted in the original panel due to the strengthening wood pieces.

So the only thing I could do was to cut off the lower section and screw the wheel base panel onto it.
I fitted these back on as the swivel ones would of been good once loaded into the back of car but probably not so good once out and pushing the sledge & R5's weight!
