    I was unable to see if you have the stainless or fiberglass forward arch. Are you wanting to make it an aft arch?

    If you write to Atlantic Tower and ask them to send you pictures of 456 or 450 460 I suspect you'll get some showing the attachment points. (I did this for my Passage 42 - the pictures gave me a good idea of what to expect).

    Yes I have been on the web page ,I’m trying to get a picture of what they did inside to gain access to the mounts if that makes sense?

    I don't know the differences between a 450 and a P42. But I recently installed an Atlantic Arch on my P42. Although Atlantic Towers provides backing plates, I created larger ones out of 1/2" fiberglass sheet (from McMaster Carr). I was able to access the mounting points from the aft storage compartments. It was quite a bit of work to figure out the tube lengths and mounting angles but I'm happy with the end result.
