That certainly is an extremely prestigious towbar of quite stunning proportions and of a quality which I will aim to reproduce. This might even be achievable given that I've been ogling photos of strut top mounts so much lately ;-0 ;-0 ;-0 ;-0

The problem for me with Anjo's lovely Volvo/Tobo is that it lacks a flange. Flange is a must! How else are you to mount a Flipper?
