I'm putting a RamMount 1" ball base on the switchplate, with the metal backing plate on the opposite side of the switchplate. Initially, I drilled holes in the plastic on the ride side of the switches and planned to have it stacked and secured in this order: mount, switchplate, plastic, and finally the backing plate. HOWEVER, it is gonna be a royal PITB to get my hand up in there to manipulate the nuts on the back side of it.
If anyone else has used this setup, are the rivets (currently using) or rivet nuts (may use these later) enough to hold the 8" tablet and mount?
I know the plastic would be an awesome reinforcement, but it doesn't appear to be practical.
