    I'd check eBay for those... probably your best bet.

    And for the trailer hitch fitting, I used the same directions that Wulf has posted (the 2nd link). Just be POSITIVE you have it lined up correctly before you start drilling holes, and, you will probably want to coat the holes with some sort of sealant or pant as soon as you can. If you don't you'll have exposed metal on the underside of your car that will rot out your spare tire compartment. Oh yeah, and take everything out of your spare tire compartment before you start drilling.
