I'm looking for some input.

How many of you guys have the the lift actuator bracket "through bolted" to the hatch? How many have a glassed in style mount under the hatch that leaves a smooth external look?

I'm fixing to mount up a new hatch and like the security and simplicity of the thru bolt but would rather not see the hardware from the outside. I really hate to drill holes in the hatch but don't trust myself to glass in a mounting assembly.
