Rear Apron Bolts

Post by Sylvester » Sun Mar 27, 2011 4:26 pm

I need 3 for my 71 Bus, any one have them?
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue, I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace. Where never lark, or even eagle flew. And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod, The high untrespassed sanctity of space, Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

I don't, but your hardware store does. They're a common, albeit metric, size. If you need three, that must mean you still have one. Take it with you to match with and I'll bet you strike gold.

Or if they don't, some NAPA stores have a killer metric nut and bolt drawer behind the counter. I've gotten some odd size stuff there.

As soon as I typed it in I thought hardware store, so away I will go this weekend. Should have lots of places to find them.

Question, I took apart my rear bumper and busted three of the crusty bolts on it. These are the round end, with square shaft ones that fit in the bumper so they can be screwed in. I found them, Bus Boys has them, might ask if they have a package and I can replace them all, mine a CRUSTY, at least the ones that survived.

same here. My bus couldn't tell they weren't metric, so I think we got away with it.
