    Grommets 14-15 in the bottom still should be fine I think, but try to position the top of the frame like in the photo, make sure there is still firm support under the frame, not just white protection plate. It will make side support at somewhere about grommets 13-14.

    You can see also, there is leather protection between the top support rod and frame, I think it helps to prevent damage to the paint.

    Just checking :-), you are using side support's plates with sandpaper side down, right? :-)

    if you did it certainly didn't show in the photos. you should've spread the 6/12 o'clock columns further, maybe even as much as 3" further away from each other. then you adjust the 6/12 o'clock support accordingly and your side support will be further apart as a result.

    Oh yes, :-) It was the light in one of the photos, that made it look like the sandpaper is up ...
    By the way, if you count top 17th hole using 78 grommet pattern, than it's no problem, I think...

    Good to hear :-)
    I used very rough paper, I think 80 or something. The best sandpaper is the kind designed for the machine, those are very durable.

    Use the used grips as cushion if you don't want to scratch it.

    Overgrip is best for this; replacement grips compress and allow too much frame spread.

    Looks ok, from what is possible to see from the photo... Just make sure side supports screwed thoroughly, and you should be ok...

    The grip talk was about protection between the 6/12 o'clock posts and racket frame to avoid scratching the paint by the metal of the post.
