Thanks Barber, can't wait for "d day"

For anyone yet to do the backend or a project and just looking at what is involved here is a bit on my decisions on fixing the backend structure. Can't guarantee it will all work yet but will post my success or fail anyway!

The rear body fixing will be:

- Front screen top frame bond (with possible U Brackets on Roll cage, but not looking likely)

- Side brackets (as pictured blanks for size/form) will be bonded to the outer skin (with strengthening embedded in them) and bolted to the car brackets with a rubber dampener.

- Lower arch brackets have been fabricated (as pictured) and will be attached to a bolt coming through from the boot area. Will be attached to the lower wheel arch on body in some fashion to stop lower "flapping" with rubber dampening.

- Standards fixings @ B pillar in door area

- Screw and Bond to boot extension sides and rear areas

- Bond to parcel shelf (which is attached to roll bar cross member and car original roof rear surface.
