Finally put on the HKS catback. With all the heat going on in Ontario with noise tickets, it's a good setup to stay under the radar.

I made this bitchin' heavy duty bike rack for my e-bike. Now I can bring it anywhere. I'll bet this thing could hold a motorcycle, it's so strong. The pipe going into the tow hook holes is schedule 80 steel pipe.

How does the pipe fasten to the tow hook holes? Is it a friction fit, adapted to a threaded stud, or machined threads on the pipe?

Just a warning, I am not sure what those crossbeams are made of, but they are likely to try to buckle if you put too much lateral load on the rack. (Turning the car with something on it).

Also, not entirely sure how the uprights are constructed, but that seems to be a large moment to be supported by a small amount of thread under longitudinal acceleration.

It's clever, just remember to take it real easy with a load on it.

It starts with a M16x1.5 bolt (the rarest thread pattern in the world) 7 inches long and a nut. Cut off the head of the bolt and bevel the end slightly. Thread on the nut. Put it in the freezer. Get a 6" piece of 1/2" EMT (metal electrical conduit). Deburr the ends. Put it in a vice and heat it up. Take the bolt out of the freezer and pound it into the conduit. Once it cools it's a press fit but I welded it just to make sure. Now get a 1' piece of 3/4" schedule 80 steel pipe threaded on each end. Cut it in half. It will slide perfectly over the bolt/conduit piece. My first idea was to thread the bolt/conduit into the tow hook hole and slide the 3/4" pipe over it and pin it. But it wasn't sturdy enough, so I welded it to the bolt/conduit. So essentially you have a solid steel rod 1" thick with a 3/4" tapered pipe thread on one end and a M16x1.5 thread on the other. Oh, by the way I had to open up the hole through the rear of the car about .001 (unibit) so the pipe fits tightly into the hole. Then I screwed on the angles and pipe pieces. When I got the angles just right, I loctited the angles to the Schedule 80 pipe with red loctite. So that angle is fixed. The rest is pretty much self explainatary.

Yeah
I don't slide around turns with the bike on like I usually do, but it's pretty secure. The uprights are schedule 40 3/4" steel pipe. The cross supports are a piece of that stuff they use on chain link fence to secure the ends. It's pretty strong. They are connected to the pipes using 1 1/4" conduit clamps bent to fit. They are also screwed together where they cross. So when one is pushing the other is pulling. My biggest concern is the bungy cords breaking.

It was easy. No line. No problems. Just do it before it's too late.

Had the body shop paint the stripes on since they had to paint the hood, roof, and bumpers anyways. Gave them the black Toyota paint code from an 86 Corolla SR-5.

I have this set up as well. I really like that it's not too loud and obnoxious. The weigh savings is pretty substantial too,compared to stock.

Prepped my girl for her first track day. This included installing dedicated track rotors and pads on all four corners, fluid changes and an oil cooler installation (had to revert to a stock airbox as my aftermarket intake wasn't compatible with the oil cooler I bought.

That's a lot of work just for the track. I used to tape my front lip up every track day. That didn't last long, and I clearly don't care enough even for that anymore
