    Where is the best place to get a deal on front bumper bolts? If someone has the specs can I get them at a local hardware store or is it better to buy the original type.
    I need the 4 that hold the brackets to the frame and the 8 chrome ones that hold the bumper to the brackets.

    Also, who sells the correct door panel screws? I don't see the screws on Yearone's site. I may need to ask this in the interior forum.
    Thanks

    Depends on your build. Correct is nice and it does corrodes. Unless it has to be grade-8, I use stainless and chrome on my racecars. My ragtop is getting original-type hardware.

    Thanks, great info.
    I'm gonna buy Lingenfelter aluminum bumper brackets so I was just wondering if I needed the oem bolts and almost every bolt on the car is stainless but I'm sure the bumper bolts should probably still be grade 8 or whatever they are from the factory.

    With aluminum brackets, you could probably use wood bolts. The bolts won't be the weak-link.

    They are inner fender well splash shields, Detroit Muscle Technology. Classic Indistries . Roseville Moparts , I’m sure many more
    Clips come with them

    Ok thanks I was looking at the splash shields at YearOne but the pic didn't look like the right shape.

    I'll have to post some pics when I get time, it's a project car that I bought about 75% done, the guy did a beautiful job on it.
