Mantec Question

I put my mantec on tonight. Really happy with it. Quick question. For the top hinge, you drill out the top rivets in the capping and put the bolts through. Do I need a stiffening plate behind the capping on the inside or is the nyloc nuts good enough?

I just used washers. There are several layers of metal there, with additional stiffening provided by the proximity of the bends in the capping. I think it will be more than strong enough, but if you wanted to put something in there, I would just get a piece of bar stock and drill it out for the bolts.

Not sure if one is needed, but Mantec ships the carrier with a backing plate as part of the kit. The backing plate has the two M10 nuts welded to it. Andrew's method sounds like a good solution.
