No problem guys. here's the fender where the dzus clips into. These come with the dzus fasteners we used panel bond, which is an adhesive that bonds steel to fiberglass.

Looks like your hole in the bumper was too big. Did you have enough room to rivet the fastners on?

Still haven't got around to doing that yet. I will be doing it sometime soon when it goes back to the shop.

I've got people like this covered. Notice that there is an "eye" that passes through the latch. I just ran a ziptie through the eye to serve as a "lock".

Just an FYI Protex is in the UK..a minimum order is $35 and shipping costs like $35.


ProTex ProLatch Jr in Stainless steel with modified receiver catches. Attached with #6 Stainless Hex bolts, washers and nuts.

There is a US based shop that should come up if you google Peotex ProLatch

The only issue is they don't have Stainless ProLatch Jrs, and they don't have the catch plates at all.

The thing that made me go with the ProLatch Jr: they were the perfect size. You can modify the specified catch plates, or you can get different ones. I'm confident they have ones in the style mine are modified to.. And most importantly, they have a safety so it can't unlatch itself, and it has a through hole you can run a cotter pin or zip tie through for more security.

This is exactly what I need for my 2012 WRX, since they've made it enormously annoying to put the bumper back on.
