I can photograph what is on my car if you wish, but it is a partly home brewed solution.

I do have a "bent" (I mean post collision bent) metal plate that was originally bonded in to the front of the car to hinge it to the front subframe; you can have that if you want it.

This is the original mounting bracket on mine.

I cut it out and made a new one in GRP and kevlar.

Image

The hinges bolt to a cross piece on the front of the front subframe.
This is the best photo I have I'm afraid.
