i really like the hatch idea! its different but still pretty cool. My only worry is how are you going to seal it? and i rivet or bolt a steel plate onto the fiberglass hatch because when you are wheeling and something hits the hatch the fiberglass wont last to long...

Although again i do like ti =]

You did a pretty good job! I like that you kept the hatch functional.

Do you plan on putting any type of cage in there. Since it is a unibody the whole structure needs to work together for support.
