|Luggage Rack bracket, one of four|
Luckily, the shop has an endless supply of screws and nuts. This works just as well as the backing plate, but does not look as clean. Meh.
Once one bracket is mounted, the other ones are a lot easier. I started with the top left (looking at it from the rear), on to the top right. I suggest measuring where the hole is in relation to the end of the quarter panel. My first bracket is 14.25 inches to the bottom hole. Like I said earlier, it should be about a quarter inch lower. Hopefully, if you need to do this, the measurements in the instructions work for you...and your panels are mounted in harmony.

|Luggage Rack project finished...finally|
There you have it, a sort of how to for installing a Luggage Rack. Time of install, not including delays, was about two hours.
On to the next project.
