hatch tow points, where are you mounting em?

from the mud by anything other than the wheel...
where are you guys attaching tow hooks?
and also are you mounting homemade bumpers in the stock bumper sockets?
looks like i can fab a trailer hitch using the bumper mount bolts,
and the center rear gas tank bolt as the attaching points
havent even looked at the front yet

82's didn't have a shock absorbed bumper so this all worked well. May work for a bumper/tow bar?
82 Hatch, transforming.....:temper:

think of a old raingutter, with a plastic disguise.
even the old vw rabbits had a nice thick chunk of aluminum,
wish i had saved a few of those
ive a thing cut out here, awaiting the stick:
two plates hung between the bumper mount bolts and the body, spanned by square tubing above which the tongue goes through the body skirt, and is bolted to the same bolt which holds the *gulp* gas tank.
allows triangulation without involving the bumperette,
and if my car hadnt been rear-ended,
would hide above the sheetmetal, just below the bumperette
drilled six holes, 8 zawzaw cuts, and four beads,
and one puncture wound in an already mashed body panel
