View Full Version : Project-G / RyokuRob Tow Hook Group Buy 2013

02-23-2013, 05:35 PM
We know you guys have been waiting for this, and from what we understand, a lot of you have been kicking yourselves for missing out last time. So we finally got RyokuRob to do another run of his Tow Hooks.

As many have learned, Rob does his Tow Hooks in small batches through out the year, so if you are considering getting a set, now's the time to jump on. We had so many people try to get in after it was finished last time. So don't let this one pass you by.

The Fronts are the same for both NA and NB Models as shown above.

For this run there will be 5 colors offered: Red, Blue, Black, Purple, and Gold. Raw is also available.
All will come with Rob's custom etching.

NA Type 1 Shown Above

For this run, Rob is offering both the NA Type 1 (Shown Above) and also the NA Type 2 (Shown Below) for the NA Rear.The previous design was slightly taller where it makes it way under the rear bumper. On a stock height car it didn’t make a difference, but once he started testing on Project-G’s red miata, there was too much loss of ground clearance. It was apparent it was an issue. Now he has introduced a new design and has gained another 5/16” of clearance and it made a definite difference.

NA Type 2 Shown Above. There are 3 mounting positions: Standard Stock Bumper, R-Package Rear Lip, and Custom Cut Bumper.

NB Rear Shown Above

Each order comes as a set with both front and rear tow hook sets, and includes all the necessary hardware. NA Sets come with your choice of Type 1 or Type 2 Rear (while supplies last)

This is my list so far. If you're not on the list, or if you want to modify your order, let me know. I will be sending e-mails out to everyone confirming information and order with a price quote and payment information this week. I will also be updating the list once a day as new orders and confirmed payments arrive. Thank you everybody!

We're gonna let the group buy go on for about another week so we can get final numbers on everyone's colors, then we'll send the hooks out to the anodizers. This is the updated list with everyone who has paid up until this morning. If you're not on the list, and you want to be, just send me an e-mail.


02-28-2013, 09:10 PM
piece of advice keep those red ones out of prolonged sunlight,AZ sun is wicked caused mine to have turned damn near pink lol,great quality though,since i have a plating maching and anodizing may end up redoing mine.

03-04-2013, 04:59 PM
Here's the list of those who have already paid along with new additions. Once again, if you don't see yourself on the list but you want to be, e-mail me at JonB@ProjectGLA.com.


03-04-2013, 08:46 PM
I sent payment by paypal.

We're hoping to have these ready to ship by end of next week. So we're close. This means that Sunday at midnight we're gonna lock down all the colors. Everyone who's pre-ordered of course gets what colors they ordered, and we will then have a small supply of tow hooks in a limited selection of colors. This also means that the group buy price ends at midnight on Sunday. All the prices will go back to normal and the in store discount of $8 dollars will no longer apply. So everyone jump on this while you can. It took 6 months since the last time we did this to gather ourselves for another run. So get a set while supplies last. Here is the list of those who have paid and new additions so far.


03-15-2013, 01:05 PM
Here's the updated list. I sent everyone who wasn't marked as paid a PM yesterday. Get your last minute orders in!


03-22-2013, 03:07 PM
So we ran into a couple speedbumps during some of the last steps of the finishing processes. The ship date I was hoping for has been pushed back by about a week. So I'm hoping to start getting these out to everybody first week of April. Very sorry for the inconvenience everybody. At any rate, here is the current list and those who have paid so far. As usual, if there is an issue you see on my list, let me know. And if you would still like to join in on the group buy, send me an e-mail at JonB@ProjectGLA.com. Thank you for your patience everybody!

Sorry for the lack of updates this week everyone. While everything is at the anodizers, all we can do is wait. They should be ready for us to pick up within the next week. Then we'll be able to start shipping! Thank you for your patience everybody!

And that's just part of them. Today I will be doing as much of the sorting and packing as I can, and these WILL BE SHIPPING OUT MONDAY. All those who asked to have their hooks on will call, you can come pick them up at any time. Thank you everyone for your patience. We will be getting these out to you as soon as we can.

04-20-2013, 01:05 PM

Everything is all packed up and going out tomorrow! Everyone domestically should be getting theirs within the next few days and everyone internationally, it all matters on your border customs, but they are on the way. For all those who wanted to pick up, you are welcome to stop by anytime during business hours to pick them up, unless you want to work something out with myself to bring them to a meet and pick them up there. Thank you all so much for your patience.

To everyone who inquired about the hooks after I had ended the group buy, I will be contacting you in the next few days with a list of what I have left.

And Chase, this is what they look like raw =)

I own a run of the gold set which I got some time ago, and I will say they are one of the parts I am most proud of. They look wonderful, are stupid strong, and were a joy to install!

Thanks Project-G for organizing this group buy, and many thanks to Rob for doing another run of his awesome tow hooks! I'm diggin' the anodized blue. Can't wait to put them on my car!

Installed my rear gold one today and it looks great.

04-25-2013, 09:33 AM
Can anyone decode the RRNA-RH3, I'm assuming Ryoku Rob, NA, rear, H?, version 3

The L shaped rear are actually dual function tow hooks. If you are strapping down the car you can use the smaller hole for a single tie down or you can use both to double strap the rear of the car.
