G3 Genuine Suzuki Dog guard - anyone got one?

Anyone got one fitted and could take a photo or describe for me.

Let me elaborate why:

The seats are removed from our G3 so the rear is a frequently used load area. Having seen the rear contents of a Ford Sierra Estate remove the passenger side headrest and exit via the windscreen in a low speed shunt, I have for some time wanted a dog guard to act as a shield. Money (or lack of) has stopped the purchase of the OEM one, and I don't like the look of the universal ones. But now it's time to make one or save my pennies for the OEM.
But I would really like to see what the OEM looks like from the rear, all I can find online is the front view


This will allow me to decide if it's worth the £245 ! or let me produce an alternative that fits my needs.

Question like:
Does it go all the way down or just half?
Does it use the rear seat base fixings or something else? (Can see top mounts)
It looks like a solid lower half, not mesh, is it?

If you have one worth 245?

Thanks

Mike

Doesn't answer all your questions but this video has one fitted. Skip to about 25:25 to see it being screwed in.

Thanks for finding that, answers at lot of my questions.
Can't figure out how the bottom attached and its at odds with my picture which shows a solid lower portion (possibly).

Looks ok though, but still not sure it's worth £245. I figure I could make one for £150 ish, but then it's time...........

Here's a pic of the mounting to the seat back - a bar runs along the side of the seat and the guard screws on at the front end. Like you I did think about making one but when you think of making all the pieces, getting it all to fit and then painting it the suzuki price doesn't look so bad :-)

Thanks so much both, perfect, just what I was after.
Barabas - yes know what you mean re Suzuki price, not bad once you factor in time. But your photo confirmed that it's likely that I would end up making modifications to the lower mount as my rear seats are removed. I have a plywood base occupying the same space. I think as I will end up chopping the Suzuki one I may as well make my own, so result, I now know the best route to take for me.
