Just read through this and it looks pretty straight forward. I've heard that you need to reinforce the hinge plates. is this correct, and, if so, with what?

Dredging up an old thread....
Watched car sos do the t4 and they welded in extra strengthening behind where the tailgate hinges. Have others done that or just bolted the hinges in their new place?

When you remove the hinges from the donor, there is a reinforcement plate with 2 holes in...or captive nuts, cant remember.....this plate is about 5mm thick. Thats plenty. No need to weld it in at all
