    I seem to have 2 of those complete with bolts and all mounts, come to think of it they are both still mounted to parts cars.

    By Hills region where do you mean. I may be coming to Syd next Saturday. If not it could be freighted but would cost 25$ or so for freight.

    I think they mean McMansion land (i.e. Castle Hills, Baulkham Hills, etc). It's quite a different little universe all of it's own.

    Hi all just a quick question..

    Do the tow bars just bolt straight on or do you have to drill / remove stuff??

    thanks

    Some bolt straight on, as cruiserman and I discovered removing one last weekend... it went onto every one of the six bolts that hold the bumper on, and some of the nuts were very hard to get at too!

    But most have an arm that goes forward under the boot floor that requires two bolt holes to be drilled in the boot floor.
