Quote from: bobbe on September 22, 2022, 12:35Interesting - is there any information online about this?
Quote from: Gaz mr-s on September 22, 2022, 15:48Nope, I don't know of anyone else having done it. You need a drill & bits & a round file.Take off the under dash plastics & view how the column is controlled. Open the slot out of the guide at the top. A little achieves quite a lot.
Quote from: Fefelarue on September 27, 2022, 20:10After 2 months of waiting, I finally have one of these:So I booked my car into Powerflow in Mitcham for a full custom system. They had a slot 5 days away which I took, then realised there was a bit of work to do because I want a bumper-exit system.So I borrowed my mother's garage for an evening:took the bumper off:Then realised it was a Sunday evening, and I hadn't brought a deep enough 15mm socket to remove the crash-bar. But I had a hacksaw and an adjustable wrench (and am planning on running crash-bar-less) so I made it work:But on to the bumper: The plan was to have no rear grille, and to clean up the bumper a bit so it looks like it was like that from the factory. So here it is with the grille removed:Then with the little clips cut off:Then with the longer trims also cut off:Then I stuck the plate back on and drove it home like this:But wasn't happy with the plate positioning. It didn't really work with the "that could be OEM" look I want to go for.So I went to my workshop, grabbed a hammer, and turned this 3mm stainless wire....into this:Which goes on like this:Then finally drove it to Powerflow last night, picked it up today, and it currently looks like this:Thanks for reading!

Quote from: Ardent on September 27, 2022, 23:36Well played.Just my personal preference, I would look to lose some of the excess yellow of the plate.
Quote from: Topdownman on September 28, 2022, 09:14Impressive work. That hacksaw got a good workout! I thought you had some plastic grille to go in at first but in later photos I realised that was the floor mat!Any chance of making up a smaller crash bar that wouldnt be visible but would add a bit of strength/ protection back?
