Holes in the C-Pillar

Hi All,
I'm looking at ways of attaching a permanent dog guard to the rear of the
car. Having had a feel around the headlining I "think" that there are bolt
holes in the C pillar hidden behind the cloth. Can anyone confirm this for
me? they are up high above the seatbelt mounting point. I don't want to cut
into the cloth just to find there are none there!
Cheers

James,
in the '92 VX there are no holes under the cloth in the pillars other
than those for seat belts (if there were, you could feel it through
the fabric).
What you can use for a dog guard fitting is the holes for the handles
above the doors. An alternative is drilling your own holes and using
nutserts.

Thanks Roman,
The odd thing is that I can feel what looks like holes under the fabric
(mine's a 93 if that makes any difference), and I'm tempted to put a hole In
and see what's underneath.
I could go the nutsert route I guess as I have a load lying around, but
their a pain to get in without the right tools which I no longer have access
to.

James,
If you believer there's a hole there (your '93 could have it), go for
it. You can probe it with a needle to find out how deep it is. And if
it's threaded - bob's your uncle! If it isn't of any use, you can
always neatly mask it with a plastic blanking plug.
