a question, i know that you work at ford and was wondering if you knew if i could get a towbar cover for the rear bar? theres a nice hole that needs filling

Unfortunately, Ford don't make a cover for the bar. You have BA ute bar spolier and they make 2 different ones, one for towbar and one without? seems silly to me. I don't know why they couldn't just make one and make a cover for the hole but???

You could try a sedan one and see if it could be retained some way or glue it in?

The sedan ones have to be modified. I was talking to the managing mechanic at Winford Motors out my way, and he remembers having to "hack them up" to get that to sit in properly.
Maybe there's a thread around on a B series forum,
or just make one on here.

Just an idea for you, try finding an LED light that fits the hole, take out the standard reverse light, smooth over the old hole and you've got a nice little mod. I did similar with red LED's to use as a fog light(for UK) on my sedan

Now thats an idea... just re-route the reverse light to the cut out in the middle.
