If you have 38" wide UNI (like I do), you need ten pieces, not eight, and
each piece will be a little over 53" long. The original manual had it right,
the later one has it wrong, unless the UNI bolt width has changed in the
last five years. By the way, I built both elevators in one piece (outer ends
together), and didn't cut them apart until after they were finished out and
the hinges mounted. That made it easier to make sure all the hinge points
lined up, and required less cutting of the glass.
