    Convert a towbar and fit it on Peugeot 206

    Some time ago a friend gave me a Renault Clio tow bar.
    So I decided to give a try, to see if I can convert it, so to fit in my Peugeot 206.
    Both two cars are at the same category have approximately the same horsepower and traction so the towbar is suitable for my car.
    The only difference is the way of fitting.
    The conversion it wasn't difficult and cost me only 6€
    for the buying of
    a piece Stock flat bar 120x8x500mm for 3€
    and
    m10χ40mm bolts, m10 nuts, m10 wide washers, m10 lock washers
    all x 10 pieces another 3€
    the nuts has used for the making of the special cage nuts that passing into the chassis.

    A down-side view of why we need the spacers between tow bar brackets and chassis.
    We can see, how the difference arises, at the distance of the front and back support points.
