How to install tow hitch

Hi guys,

Have recieved my hitch for my 280e 1993 (124). Its custom made. Ive been having a look at our other cars to see how they attach.

On this bar theres two Bolts on each mounting point - above the exhaust and one on the other side. Much like the one on our 300TE wagon.

The bolts I recieved dont have any nuts with them.

Do I need nuts on these bolts or do I need to get threaded holes drilled?

Do I need to drill holes or are there blanks already there?

Any other pointers ?

1989 230E - Gone
1995 C200 - Gone
1993 280E 120000KM - Built like a brick, the best one yet

unless it mounts to the bumper mounts you will need to drill holes and find some nuts.
