Adding fastening system to side/top boxes

So, I have the '15 RT with full boxing. However, I wouldn't mind adding some sort of hooks, or eyes, so I can bungie things in the boxes so they don't roll around (travel mugs, bottles/cans when I go shopping, etc)

Now, the boxes seem to be double walled, and I can't understand HOW to take them apart. I see bolts, so I'm guessing i should start there.

But any ideas for other options? Maybe using drywall toggle anchors and some bolt on eye hooks? Then I can bungie things. Using eye type things will cause less things to be ripped compared to an actual hooks.

Maybe some sort of 3M VHT'd plastic mount?


Also, the back grab bars are angled back, and have no nub on the bottom to keep bungie hooks or straps from sliding back....I just can NOT find any areas that are good to strap things too on the outside. What do y'all do about that (besides take the top box off...)

It's a living....
