hidden winch mount

I built a hidden winch mount that omelet created. Didn't turn out as good as I wanted. But it will work.

No one has done it yet. I have a design that someone here was going to test out for me, but he hasn't gotten around to it yet. If you are very interested in making one for your CRD send me a PM.

Why don't you just fill the holes and re-drill them?
