Nice job! I'm in the middle of one right now. What "mechanical" did you use for your pull out bed?

Slide bed information

I used slides drawer slides that were I think 23 or 24 inch long with the capability of 135lbs each and reused the aluminum folding frame from the AS. Built a frame under it out of wood and attached an aluminum angle ledger to the wall to carry the weight in the back
