Hey Justin :)

The kits that give you 6 per side are only for the top. They are usually the correct 5/16 bolts with the star type washers. There are 3 additional bolts that you can get from your local hardware store.

I'm curious. You found 11. Where are the other 2 that I missed ? :confused:

shouldnt there be the 6 on top along the apron and then the others into the front to tie the apron front together at the radiator support? and one under the fender to the body.

A 1/2" bolt would be ENORMOUS. They are not 1/2", they are 5/16"-18. This bolt size probably accounts for 70% of all the bolts on these cars, including the motor. When people say a bolt size, they are not talking about the socket size, they are referring to the thread diameter and pitch.
