Default Lexan repair?

I took my new Jeep Rubicon out for the first time bashing, The rear body mounts ripped through the lexan leaving 2 huge holes, and the body ripped near the rollbar. Does anyone have ideas for repairing a body damaged in this fashion? I did the body for bashing purposes so I am not too upset, but I have no way to secure the body on the rear post anymore which makes it almost unusable. Any suggestions?

if you have some left over pieces of lexan cutit to fit and make the mount holes then use some shoo goo to hold it in position on the body and it should work

Take out the rear body post and turn it around. Drill new holes.

Take out the rear body post and turn it around. Drill new holes.

The body mounts are straight so turning them around won't make a difference.

What I ended up doing, I have a tmaxx with a rubicon body. I bought a stampede body mount which is angled back, secured it to the chassis, and redrilled the holes. I think I may try some spare lexan and cut to fit and shoo goo in.

Thanks for advice everyone!
