Tow hook thread size

I recently purchased a used 2002 986S that did not come with the tow hook (eye)
Would anyone know the thread size and pitch. I figured I'd weld a eye on the head of a grade 8 eight bolt. Thanks. 2HE

Ernie, you may want to search up for 'Woody' as he sells used parts and most likely he will have one of those tow hooks..

Apparently it's a knuckle thread. The one Porsche uses (since around 1986) is called DIN 405 Rd 20 x 1/8". Which means a diameter of 20mm and a pitch of 8 threads per inch.
