    It looks the same as my Hatchback version.

    Electrics? - what's your plan?

    They would be easy to put together though, as they're only bits of flat plate to spread the loads a bit.

    The bolts go through the chassis and up into the boot floor. The plates go on the boot floor to spead the weight

    ok i assume the holes will already be in my chassis? sounds as though the plates will be easy enough to fabricate. if thats all they are.

    The holes have to be drilled but there are dimples on the boot floor under the sound deadning
    You'd also need high tensile sleeving to go into the chassis leg to stop it collapsing

    hmmmm ok and would the other side of the chassis underneath the car need drilling too? if so do you know if thats marked also?

    sounds like you've done it before!

    Well make sure you fit it correctly because they are part of the MOT test now
