Exploding Gas Tanks and Canadian Mustang

In The October 1999 issue of Mustang & Fords there is an article about installing a metal backseat panel in lieu of the standard card board piece.

The piece is made by Canadian Mustang, and allthough for liability reasosns they can't claim anything, it seems to me like the thick metal piece makes sense. In particular, I wanted it to replace my rotting stock divider and cover it with sound proofing material. I'm not really worried about my gas tank exploding and dousing me with flames, but I do like metal better than cardboard any day of the week.

I didn't want to install it myself, and to my extreme surprise my favorite shop refused to install the product, again for liability reasons.

Anyone else had any wierd experiences like this?

I just started working on it today and need input. (and spell checking!!!)

I seem to recall MM refusing to do stories about installing shoulder harnesses in older Mustangs due to liability reasons, yet they print brake articles and steering build ups no problems. It is weird.
