It wouldn't fit very well anyway- brackets are the wrong shape

Silly question Curly, but what shape bumpers have You got on the car?

Think about visiting the family then, or asking them to handle onward transport/postage/whatever! ( I could deliver to them)
I have 2 options for You to consider:
Previous owner of my car hacked the towball off with a grinder, so I have the correctly shaped brackets with a chunk of angle iron between them, but it needs a bracket & towball welding on

If pushed I might admit to a peku style towbar (again for a late car)

Will sort pics in the next 24hours
