  1. I'd like to get on making a DIY trailer hitch for my 2005 smart cdi fortwo. I was going to remove the rear crash bar and replace it with a 2' x 2' 1/8" thick square steel tube with a 1.25' receiver welded on bottom. Then cut a corresponding hole cut in the valance. A few people recommended this approach. My brother is a pro welder so that's not a problem. It sounded straight forward but looking at the crash bar I see I need to weld a couple of plates to the back and drill some holes (which I can do no problem) to mount it properly Is this what people are doing? Does anyone know the bolt pattern or have a diagram? I'll likely pick up a T45 torx in the next couple of days and try to remove it and then I can trace it all out but I thought I'd ask. Another one I saw the fellow seems to have mounted his tow bar outside the body using the two towing hook points and he was towing some big stuff. Anybody try that approach?
