If you had bought one of the ones I machine off then I would have supplied the bolts ;)

Can't remember what size they are off hand either, if you don't know by weekend I will wander into the garage and check.

I did however find this!

Pretty sure most small hardward shops will have M12 bolts you will want hardened ones though.
I am sure I have a shed load in the garage...

Out of curiosity how much are these? They look to be a VERY easy bit of something to knock up!!!

Haha thank god, I thought it might have been one of those massively overpriced bits of kit then!

Where would you position the front strap nabs_type_R?
I was thinking of removing one of the small panels on the front bumper that are used for the solid tow eye that comes with the car then have it through this as behind there the is the proper towing point for the car.

So it will be positioned just the same as a solid one on the front that u can get from tegwia or j's but just having the strap.

I have seen a few pictures of it done on here an i think it looks good but cant find any at this moment :(
