I’ll have Nick do a count- 3 in trunk, 2 at firewall.
we will get a firm count.
Don--I see the 2 on the firewall next to the hood latches I have the OEM plugs there. I recall plugging the hole in the bottom of the spare tire well that was a much smaller hole. Please let us know where to look for the other openings for such a large 1 3/8" diameter plug. Thanks, Drew

It looks like you will have run out long ago from posts above, but if there is another run I would love 20

Ditto - if another bulk order is made, please count me in for 13 (or whatever the decided quantity is). Perhaps I should go take a look at my bare chassis in the garage and count up the holes... :cool: I could add to @eriknetherlands count above.

I took a quick look at the car this morning. I can confirm the (9) holes that @eriknetherlands documents above. These holes are measuring about 34.8mm on my car, which relates to the 1 3/8" that these new plastic plugs will fill. In the firewall, I only see (2) more holes at this size. Firewall, near the top, one on each side. There is another hole below the one on the left, but it is a smaller diameter.

Let me know if I should look anywhere else. The pass I made this morning was pretty quick, so I could have missed something. Else, I am coming up with (11) total at this size.

Erik shows where they are. Those smaller holes are for A/C pipes.
Ah, I see Erik did capture these. Guess that puts us back down to (9) holes. The holes on the right (below and outboard of my bent drain pipe) are for AC, yes. The 31.7mm hole is on the left, though. In looking at my photos, I think the 31.7mm hole was for a portion of the wire loom, and the smaller yet hole below it was the speedometer cable. I could be wrong.

to be clear- I bought an extra 500 (lifetime supply) Now have 700 and have cornered the international plug market I’m sure.
the first 5 packages went out last Friday.
every Friday Stephanie will send out more.
everyone gets as many as they want.

suggestion box is open for next group buy or a run on the 3D printer
