Anybody picture of 2002 ZeroFlex folded flat?

I bought a 2002 X10.
It has the MC ZeroFlex tower on it, with board racks and speakers.
I can't seem to find any instruction on how to fold it flat, and what it will look like with the tower flat.

Does anybody have a picture and/or instructions for folding a 2002 ZeroFlex?

Thanks

don't have any pics, but the process is pretty straight forward. there are 4 black knobs that will need to be removed and 2 hex head bolts that will need to be loosened. to just lower the tower, remove the lower 2 black knobs and the tower will fold forward and rest on the bow. the upper knobs and 2 hex bolts allow the lower legs to fold down to increase clearance. if you are lucky and all your knobs and hex bolts spin freely, when you put them back in, make sure and lube them up with anti-sieze.

Great, thanks for the explanation and photo.
I want to bring her in the city in the next couple of weeks, but some bridges are really low. We'll try it.

I built a stand to support it while it's down due to the pressure the tower puts on the bow cushions. As you can see JRW160 has towels on the contact points for the same reason.

yup. i built a stand as well. mine is like a little arch that also keeps the tower light from piercing the bow cover.

I put foam pipe insulation over the hand rails and set the tower on that....easy on/easy off, stow under one of the bow cushions

nice and simple, wish i could do that. not sure how his X10 will fall, but on my X30 the hand rails are too far forward to do that.
