    Just got my hold down from Coupe - very nice!!!!

    The only suggestion I might make is that, typical Toyota attention to detail, the rear stock hold down has a plastic clip that holds it in place so you don't need 3 hands to fish it though and hold the rear one in place while you attach the retainer. To make this work, the stock rear stay is thicker (7mm) and then necks down to fit the same size nut as the front. I know coupe probably just has to buy stock off the shelf retainers and having them custom made would be $$$ but the smaller diameter means that this mechanism doesn't hold it for you like the factory piece. Minor nit on an otherwise beautiful product!

    I appreciate the feedback. To make the custom j hook would add cost but could be done.

    The design of anything is often a trade-off of cost, function and aesthetics.

    The hard part is coming up with the correct balance that appeals to the masses.

    No worries coupe - like I said I totally understand why you do it that way.

    Ive been driving for 30+ years and this is the first vehicle I've ever seen with that little plastic retainer... very ingenious.

    You might be able to slide a short piece of vacuum hose over the end of the j hook and achieve the same results.
