Figure I should get this mocked up before I pull the bumper off to fit the fillers. Plus there is going to be some consideration/fabrication needed once I get in there. Lots of fore/aft and vertical adjustment.
The hitch mount comes of for other prospective attachments (parachute?).
Ironically I hadn't touched this project since I came down with a suspected case of the 'VID. Truthfully, I was avoiding anything that would irritate my throat et al. Feeling way better the last few days I ventured into the garage (Natasha actually ordered me out there) to chip away at this some more.
Still need to brace it to the bumper. But, it shouldn't fall off for now.
They sell a replacement tailgate lock for an early series S-10 Blazer that will work on our cars, if you don't mind it being black. I remember Advance Auto sold them at one time. ...and perhaps even Auto Zone.
