Fibreglass boot lid fitting

I'm looking for a way to mount my fibreglass boot lid. Mines a single skin, can anyone post pics of how you've mounted yours?

I made an alloy bracket riveted to the inside of the skin that took the standard hinge, with the pins replaced with bolts, the lower is fixed with bonnet pins. Not the prettiest but functional. I have since added a boot spoiler to hide some of the rivets and add some strength to the panel and really just because I can.

Thanks guys. I remember seeing a while back what Dave P did for his -




These were just bonded on with tiger seal

How did you guys mount the bottom fixings?

bonnet pins, but also retained the lock without the key, which is unlocked by a pull cord in the cab, no pictures I am afraid.

I decided that I wanted to keep the boot on hinges, as it's would be a pain having to pull it off and put it back on all the time. First things first, got the angle grinder out and put a few cuts in the old boot lid to remove the hinges.


All that's left of the old boot lid, after cutting the gas strut mounts out as well.


Two hinges all cleaned up and ready for fitting


I then set about refitting the hinges to the body, once that was done, I offered up the boot lid and aligned it to the body. When that was done I marked the boot lid ready for fitting the hinges.

The hinges bonded on with tiger seal -


Boot refitted
