    Different type , shape and construction of socket hole, I believe they were for military tow. Socket electrics but also made it to civi versions

    I'd better put me glasses on next time :)
    But it did have a round hole that I put me towing socket in.

    Now that i've confused everyone with a picture of a TD5 cross member (Lesson learned), i now have a dilemma.

    I do need to replace the rear cross member, with either one with extensions or a 1/4 chassis (including suspension mounts). The dilemma is i want to keep the socket hole, probably will never use it, but i want to keep it looking original. All of the up to TD5 cross members do not have the hole.

    So do i have any other options other than the following;
    1) Fit a cross member without the hole
    2) Fit a TD5 cross member which defeats the object of originality
    3) Spend more and get one made
