That is why I would prefer to get into more detail and I'm concentrating on the flagellar hook because I see this as possibly the strongest position to argue for the IC of the flagellum. So if anyone can convince me that this is easily explained by unguided natural means, I'm ready to listen.

You're still getting it backwards. We have abundant evidence that biological structures arise and are modified by natural means such as mutations and natural selection. Whether you find that convincing is your own problem. If you are advocating the positive creationist claim that an IC structure such as the flagellum can only be produced by "design", then you need to provide the evidence for this claim, not just say, "This is what I believe. Prove me wrong."

There's a big difference between saying "IC structures can be produced by design" and "IC structures can only be produced by design."
