Default Body mount identification

Picked up an older 4tec but can't figure out the front body mounts. I've never seen anything like them before. They aren't threaded and there is no holes for a body clip to go into. Don't know if they are custom or not maybe somebody can shed some light on how to use them

To me, they look like oval super speedway racing body posts. Do they have a tapped hole on the top of the posts? If they do then that's probably what they are. You just use a small screw through the body. You could always switch them out for more normal body posts.

no holes. It seems almost like they were suppose to be threaded

Those aren't original at all, neither is that bumper.

You need parts 4335 and 4214. Also possibly others depending on the "modifications" to that chassis.

I never claimed that they were original. I've owned several og 4tecs. I was stating that I've never seen the front body mounts before and was wondering how to mount the front of the body with them
