Could anyone share some good ideas (with pictures even better) on how to build a gaucho that slides easy and is light. Below shows a couple picture I took of my computer screen watching a video on a super easy sliding gaucho. It had 500lbs rated slides. Great job of a 63 renovation. The link to the video itself is below

I bought a couple pairs of the above slides and got a schooling on how heavy they were 8.5 lbs each. I donít want to add 34 lbs in the slides themselves. So I am looking for alternatives. It is going into a 73 TW, front but that shouldn't matter
My original Gaucho bound up a bit and had to rock/pull back and forth to pull out. I know wax etc will improve that but any slick builds out there.
I would love to see tried and true old school examples and some new idea that is doing the trick. Just don't want it to be a chore converting the bed to sofa and back.
Also the video mentioned it pulled out and dropped into notch. I donít know how that would work with ball bearing slides. I plan to drop a pin/ lag bolt in a hole on each side to hold in place. In open position and closed position.
Any help would be appreciated
