Default "36 Grille Bolts

The bolts used to secure the grille to the fender (horn) side panels are supposed to be 5/16-18, aren't they? The holes are large enough for 5/16" bolts, but I seem to recall a thread where someone said to use 1/4" bolts.

What's the proper size screws, please????

Thanks,
-Bob

Check with Roy Nacewicz. I'd guarantee that he'd know the correct bolt size and would have them to sell.
Great guy to talk Ford V-8's
Good luck.
