Bear Claw latch

Can someone explain or point me in the right direction on mounting bear claw latches to a fiberglass T-Bucket?

Everyone's setup is probably going to be a little different but here is a step by step of how I put claws in my sedan delivery. Might give you you some ideas to work with.

Take a look at the '28 or '29 Ford 'A' roadster latch (or even the Model T's). You might just find that it would be a better arrangement then bear claws in a 'bucket.
