towbars

@andymonty or anyone else who might know, i noticed you have a towbar so guessing you may have looked around are there any that dont require cutting the bumper to fit it?

Much too brutal

Cover area with masking tape Mark it.. drill 2x 10 mm holes in the corners

Then use a junior hacksaw to do the long downward cuts to the holes.. I then used a joiners coping saw with a fine blade to do the across cut

The masking tape helps support the paint minimising the risk of it chipping
