Fintail Rear Tow Point

There is of course an OEM tow loop up front however what is the recommended procedure for yanking the car from the rear when necessary?

If you attach one single point to the bumper it will bend the bumper a bit. So don't do that.

You could wrap a rope, not a chain, around and around as much of the center section of the bumper and gently pull it on level ground. So slow.

Wrecker drivers of the day would crawl under the car and attach a large hook to one side of the axle, or to both sides and pull no more than they had to.

Slow, slow, slow...... Or you will yank something loose.

Thanks for the input. Do you think the bumper attachment points are strong enough to use to attach a fab'd loop onto?
