My question to anyone with a Soul as a toad, where did you mount your 6-pin connector?
How thick is the metal of the tubes. Can you use #10, or some 3/16 machine screws, and just run a tap in to thread the tubes. Last resort is clean the inside of the tubes really well, fill them full of JB weld, the good stuff made for steel, run your crews in, not to tight, when the JB sets solid tighten them up just a bit more.
