Default 34 body bolts

I am trying to tighten the body bolts on my 34 cabriolet. I have found only 3bolts for each side. 1 on the floorboard, 1 under the seat and one in the rumble seat. Is there another one?

The bolt on the drivers side has stripped threads. Anyone know where I can get a replacement nut and bolt.

How tight should I tighten these bolts?

I wish I could tell you to contact Roy Nacewicz....

Six per side vertically, three per side horizontally, and twelve to the center X member; with Roy's passing, I know of no one else who offers the correct fasteners for your purposes. I share Pete's wish.

When I put my 34 sedan body down, All of the bolts that David mentions, were used. But, my sedan bolt count was in the '50-range'. So, I wonder, is a Cabriolet different, meaning less bolts? Anyway, at least, all of the bolts that David mentions, were used.

I’m sorry, I’m just trying to tighten up the body to frame bolts. I got under the car this morning and could easily see a lot more bolts along the X frame. I will get a friend to help me run them down on the topside.
