macdiesel So Weeasp, did you go with a strap or metal hook?

Blmamba, is there more than one bolt holding that engine hook?

Schroeder02 That’s the same place I mounted my straps,

BlkMamba03 This is a engine hoist off of a Ford truck. Please let me know if this mounting point is not acceptable

Schroeder02 I used the Safequip straps one mine (the car in egz) photo. For the rear I just ran a bolt with some heavy washers though one of the open holes where the bumper bar mounts. One the front I haven’t quit finalized the location. Right not is hooked to where the radiator attaches to the frame, it’s not the best spot but it did work I had to tow it home last Sunday then I had a short and blew a fuse. I’m going to find a spot on the frame to attach it maybe the tie down points the use for shipping

Tow strap

This is what we use on our cars http://www.safequipracingproducts.com/racecaracc.htm

We weld a tab on the front and rear then bolt the tow strap and cut a slot in the rubber bumper.

illinipo heres a pic from an IMSA GT3 for anyone who's confused



I would say weld something to the bottom of the bumper like where theres no foam to cut away. It should be pretty strong there (its a bumper... lol)

If not then youre gonna have to weld a plate to the frame rail to extend it forward and use that.
