I didnt get the size of the washers I put to hold in the washers inside the tow hook. Same inside diameter, but the flat washers are bigger so to push up on the tow hook and hold the washers in securely. But since you will be at ACE, you can try a few flat washers out and make sure the fitment is right for your needs.

I didnt get a pic of the tow hook when I first put it together. I was so excited to have finally completed it. But here are some pics when I put it on after I drilled the tow hook cover and plasti dipped the tow hook matte back.

Tip/Advice: I drilled through the tow hook cover. TO be honest, I kind of messed it up. I tried using a cardboard mock up of the hole where the cover goes and eye balling where the tow hook would go. You are going to need a HUGE uni-bit. If I remember correctly, the diameter of the threads on the actual tow hook was 19mm. I used a rubber gromit to hide the error and it looks much nicer and professional looking. So make sure you have the right tools or just dont drill into the cover. If the Styrofoam in the bumper shows, spray paint it black.

Almost done!

Taped it off again and plasti dipped what had got rubbed off or needed to be touched up.

All done!
