How did you mount your rear a/c condenser in your fiberglass turbo tail

I will be mounting a small condenser (12x14) next to my RUF intercooler. What is the best way to do this in a fiberglass tail. I am not sure who made the tail, the only marking is a DP on the back. I will include some pics.

One I had with a tail like yours had a frame fabricated from small angle running completely across the width of the spoiler and laminated on each side of the grille area. Those hoses can add a lot of stress unless there routed down by the hinge like the original setup.

Have you considered omitting the rear condenser altogether and replacing it with a fender mounted unit? I notice a jump in oil temp of about 20 degrees in the summer heat when I turn on the ac. I have to think most of that is due to the fact that all the air the engine is seeing is coming either through the hot intercooler or the hot condenser. I am skeptical of whether or not the rear condenser is really doing all that much at that point anyways. My temp gun showed a drop of maybe 5 degrees from inlet to outlet of the rear condenser on a hot day...

I think what you had is the only logical answer. Do you have any pics? I guess the frame could be bolted thru under the rubber tail piece for added support.

If you don't mind me asking, what kind of exhaust are you running?

Thx

This was all installed by a previous owner so other than the powerhaus nameplate I don't know. Here is a pic of the whole thing:
