I'm talking about the brackets on the tail lamps and such, now you add another one that it's simply all thread?

Guys have been wondering since the first pic you posted showing rods dropping from the sky.

Yes. My basement only has 8 foot cielings. I just screwed in some hooks and hung a chain attached to some three foot all thread......crude but functional.

I am not sure I understand your question. The boddy mounts are as the factory made them.

If you are referring to how I picked it up off the chassis I used 4 pieces of all-thread attached to cieling joists and just made 4 crude brackets and just screwed it up.

That also allowed me to adjust each corner individually as I lowered it onto the replacement trunk pan.
