    Towing A-Frame.

    Does anyone know how a towing A-frame is attached to a 450? Found this pic...

    ....and it looks as if it screws into the towing eye provisions. But my 450 only has one - not the two required. How is it done?

    Looking at their website, it shows it does screw into the towing eyes.
    Strange your car only has one? Saying that I've never looked that closely to either of our cars!
    Seems bloody expensive for what it is?!

    I found an installation vid for a 451 - holes to be cut in the front panel.
    I think, for a 450, either there is another threaded boss under the panel or an additional mount bar is used. Either way, my 450 front panel would need another hole cut.
    The need for linking the brakes looks like a PITA beyond what I had in mind.

    They fit another threaded towing eye hole other side at front but beware attachment of bumper to chassis must be beefed up.
