when I installed my rack I was concerned about cracks... I drilled through the lid and inner lid and then removed the inner. I used 1 1/4 chrome washers with a neoprene washer under it on the lid and a neoprene washer and fender washer underneath the lid. The bolt I used was long enough to go through the inner lid for additional support. Between the two I added spacers so the fit was solid all the way through

I did the same and there is no flex on the trunk lid with 15 pounds on the rack. Ive run over 20,000 miles with the rack loaded and no cracks. The washers between the lid and inner liner make the lid and inner linner work as one strong support base for the rack.
