GWS 535 Float kit on GWS slow Stick

I bought a GWS float kit for my slow stick instructions not clear and don't even mention slow stick, but I've seen videos on you tube of this kit on a slow stick, anyone done this or know how to attach them? I'm sure I can engineer them on somehow, but I would like for it to be right. any help would be apreciated.

I don't know about attaching floats to a slow stick, but can you share where you got the GWS ones from?

Hey TupeloFlyer...

Not sure if this photo will help - I tried to find one that would show the detail better but I don't have one. Unfortunately, the plane is my brother's who lives in Canada so additional shots aren't easy to come by. Anyway, the floats have two wooden (spruce?) pieces that run front-to-back and on them are a couple of nylon fittings that the gear rods fit into. I could go on, but maybe the photo helps enough?

The diagonal lines running from the top-front to lower rear struts are heavy thread. We were attempting to add a little rigidity to the structure.
