Here is my Temporary Fix plus added Ideas for future more permanent repair.

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?
