    Question Rear diffuser cutout for trailer hitch

    Any ideas how the rear diffuser would look if the cutout were actually cut out, without a trailer hitch? Would it just look like a hole, or would it improve the look of the GT diffuser??

    When a car is behind you with headlights on, they'll see right in the hole at your bumper brace and trunk hump. Will probably not look good, if you're doing it for looks.

    I've been trying to find a hitch that uses the hole. So far my options are:
    -buy hitch from australia with shipping will be over $1000, and I'd be stuck using australian receiver bars since they dont have 2" tubes
    -get hitch from australia's ebay (very hard to find, and when I do nobody will ship it local in australia much less to the US)
    -custom welded hitch (havent researched this as to what it will cost me)

    find a local trailer shop (that buils flat bed trailers) they usually can build custom hitches. I bet a good shop could do a hidden system!
