Here is my Temporary Fix plus added Ideas for future more permanent repair.
Pictures added for two weeks then I have to delete due to forum Limits.

I added the steel straps to the front . Here is a video link of someone NOT ME installing the front straps.
And secured the rear with added screws and fender washers.
Here are the pictures of the screws and fender washers. If the bottom of the insulation starts to droop, I will swap out the washers for 2 inch strap steel bent into a "L shape" to hold up the bottom of the insulation, before I'll allow a dealer to hack away like they did with Wayneqsr's smart.
Is there any way to guarantee it won't get messed up like his?
