Start by selecting your components.
Total Length of your trestle can be estimated  by counting the number of
spaces ( / ) in the design code.   Multiply that number by 2.5" then add 2" + 2"
for the ends.  Length is only limited by shipping requirements.

Example
A / B / C / D / D / D / C / B / A
/  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  = 8 spaces
8 X 2.5" + 2" + 2" = 24 inches long

The ends can be trimmed up to 1 1/4"
for an exact fit to existing opening.
Note:  A long bridge adds one space  ( / ) to the space count.

Use a long flat stick and cardboard cutouts of the different length bents.  
Attached the bents with tape at  2 1/2 inch spacing along the stick to help visualize
