Mounting Accessories on CRV

I am installing an AF-1 system on my 2002 CRV. Items such as the air supply and break-a-way switch are to be mounted low on the front of the CRV.

The low portion of the front is "plastic" with zero metal available as anchoring spots.

Welcome advice from anyone who has done this installation.

The mounting of the breakaway switch can be beefed up by attaching and securing a strip of sheet metal to something solid.

Thank you, that's pretty much what I figured was the only solution...take an aluminum angle and a piece of flat stock...one on each side of a flat area of "plastic"...and bolt them together with the "plastic" between them.

This does't seem like the strongest installation in the world, but I can think of nothing better so I guess it's what I'll go with.
