Anyone know of a source for the T bolts used to hold the bumper deco strips on the bumpers?

I used M5 x 16mm carriage bolts mushroom/round top stainless steel for bumper deco strips. If you have a round hole, use a small file to make it square so the neck of the bolt fits to prevent it from turning.

The "T" bolts don't fit well.

It should be noted that the hardware for bumper and rocker decos (all years) supplied by Stoddard are not metric and should be changed. The stove bolts described above are available from any metric supplier.
Also, the rocker bolts for 356 A are M6 X 16. All bumper and rocker deco hardware should include a flat and lock washer.

I thought they were now metric, at least on bumper decos (B) although I may be remembering wrong.

I obtained the correct metric bolts from both McMaster Carr and Belmetric. Metric Multistandard probably carries them as well.
