First Hello to all, this is my first post on the list, though I've been
reading it since becoming a Spit owner a month ago.
When I acquired my Spit I decided to do major restorations to the body.
When I removed the interior (completely!). Behind the back panel AND under
the rear deck carpet is said cover. Mine is square, about 5" per side and
bent at a right angle in the center. If I remember correctly, the screws
that secure it were behind the back panel. There is really not much to it,
just a hand hole really.
