Q: What are those extra panels at the bottom of the slide? How do I build the grooves?
A: Here's an illustration.
. And here are the valley folds.
Q: How do I fold the guiderails?
A: Like this.
Note that the narrowest face folds flat onto the widest face, forming a "shelf." The rest of it is a box.
Q: How do I build the rail base on the modernized version?
A: Look at its front and back faces. They should provide an idea of how everything else is folded. Here's a picture.
Q: What are the "inner sections" of the slide (pg.2) and where do they go?
A: If the "bottom of slide" is a u-shaped half-tube, its "inner sections" are attached inside it, to the larger hatched areas. Their job is to keep the spring front cap and the barrel apart. Here's a photo.
Although covered by the bushing, they are partially visible from the front.
