    Are they legal?

    Ive heard hearsay about you can get defected for any replacement body panel made from either carbon or fibre glass, but as far as I can tell, the NCOP allows for fibreglass panels that are at least 3.5mm thick and only on non-intrusion panels like the bonnet.

    Would the rear hatch be a non intrusion panel?

    depends what state you are in. in nsw the legislation states that you can replace any exterior bolt on panel with a fiberglass replacement. so bumpers, front fenders, bonnet and boot/hatch are ok. doors are not considered a 'panel'

    Pretty sure the hatch would be considered an intrusion panel as it enters into the passenger space.

    AFIK there is nothing in the NCOP that states what material the bonnet / hatch must be made from.
