Should have taken pics I guess. Anyways twenty bucks it cost me and I still have a full can of paint so for a first go at it Im happy. It ended up being totally removable without taking off the bumper skin so now I can take it off the car to repaint and easy to return to stock looking with a new plastic cover thingy.
    So you made it? Or bought it?

    Bought it at CT. Before I left the store with it I had them weld the eye closed in the auto service part for free. Then I painted it and got the nuts and washers together to put it on. I think it was called a 6" wall mount although Home teapot or Brafasco Or even TSE might have something better.

    Not as of yet. But they are on my lengthy todo list.
    Oil plug and remote location are first, after batttery relocation, to make room.

    You have to be extremely careful with seat swaps on these guys. Some have side airbags mounted in the seat.
