There are many options and is install dependent. If you were to screw them in you would probably want to go from door to pod. You could also fiberglass some bolts into the back of the pods and drill holes in the door and use washers and nuts to secure them.

When i made pods i glasses in bolts through the mold before i dont the skeleton and the rest of it. just get em evenly spaced so they can securely be attached to the door panel.

Hey I'm just getting into making pods and want to make sure I understand completely as well. Do you lay first base coat(s) of resin down, drill holes through it and the door panel, attach a bolt and washer, then fiberglass over the bolt head and washer so it is permanently attached that way? Or do you complete the pods and then drill holes and insert bolts/washers? I'm leaning towards the first of the 2 options to make them a permanent bolt, just wanted to clarify before proceeding. Thanks in advance!
