I've got an opportunity to remove some stuff from a '86 Wagon before the FD uses it to "drill" on. The rear bumper mounting brackets look similar to my '85 Brat, but the mounting arms aren't exposed like they are on the Brat. Where do you get access to them?

Are the rear tail-lights bolts/screws accessed from inside the car rather than externally like the Brat? The rear hatch is locked so I couldn't get a look from the inside.

You need to lift the little cargo flap in the rear deck, bolts are 2 on each side.
The nuts for the lights are located behind plastic covers in the corners. I think they are 8mm.

Thanks Rob- I kinda figured access to both was from the inside somewhere. Now I just gotta get the hatch opened somehow.
