Hi Guys
Customer wants me to fit front bumper spikes to their 2008 Brabus.

Ok so no problem there as I'll locate into the tow eye and the hidden one but, the spikes don't reach the tow eye thread as too short.

How the heck do you guys do it?

Regards

Martin

I can imagine a number of possibilities, but some images would really help as I haven't opened up the extra towhook hole myself. It should be the same distance as the pass side hole from what I have seen.

Failing all else, I'd make s stub shaft to extend the threads on the spike. Since it's purely decorative, could tap the spike to accept a smaller thread bolt then thread the shaft the same as the towhook, but that sounds like more hassle than it's probably worth.
