    Hey all.
    Tried to get an answer to this one over in the body restoration section but it may do better here.
    I am trying to find out if the bolts that attach the outer fender to the inner fender
    (at the wheel well opening) come with a capture flat washer and the pointed or flat tipped 5/16 bolt on my 70 project.
    They are very visible and am thinking I would like to get this correct :)
    Thanks.

    No washer than can spin. The bolt head is wide enough that a washer isn’t needed and the end is pointed.

    Both post above are correct, it's a flanged bolt head. There are correct bolt kits available for both exterior and interior if you need to correct more of the hardware issues. I see you are in Vancouver, where are you located?

    As a added note.....The plating is Manganese Phosphate in my opinion
    Preserve your fastener finish with Fluid Film, Boe-Shield or LPS 3

    Dave, aka LTiZ28 your pics/post is terrific

    Thanks for all the replys!
    Chuck > I did notice that there were a couple of options out there to re-phosphate fasteners.
    Also noticed that many of those methods obtain a distinctly different look.
    Looks like these guys addressed that in other ways > http://www.eastwood.com/ew-zinc-phosphate-aerosol-12-oz.html
    Will look into the variations in color the phosphating leaves behind for sure!

    Phosphating small quantities of fasteners, brakets pcs NOT hard or expensive to do your self
    however the prep stage is important to have glassbeading or shot blasting machine available

    I just came from Victoria and Vancouver BC. Where are you in Vancouver? I’d like to drop by the next time I’m in town to see your work.
