OK, thanks for posting that thread. It is just what I was looking for.
Still not sure if I would drill holes like in that thread, but it does seem like a good solid install. Very nicely done.
I suppose the only other option and I think the original poster mentioned it sort of, would be to bond the bracket on. He mentioned JB Weld, but, if the bracket was really glued on (instead of welded) at the factory, it was probably a polyurethane type panel adhesive that so many of the manufacturer's are using now.
Needless to say, bolting would require drilling, and adhesive would require sanding down to the bare metal before applying the adhesive. I am not really willing to do either of those right now. Probably because the car is still new, maybe when the thrill of new car has worn off.
To bad it wasn't a direct bolt on, or I would be all over it. Thanks, YD
