Marty, I looked at the screw with the circles again with an eye loop. I can see no mark in the center but there are 7-8 circles and more faint towards the center.
I have the 2 bolts from the steering arms to the spindle and the large top spindle bolt to post.

I checked the small sheet metal screws this morning & I gave two photos #6 & #7 the wrong descriptions. I can't replace those photos but Marty maybe you can?
Sorry for the misinformation. Revised photos attached. George.

I blasted some sheet metal screws and took pictures today. The screw ( 9420415 ) Dave69x33 posted I found 3 variations of it. D, RBW,& Blank. The smaller sheet metal screws I may not be 100% correct on the diameter.

Marty, I can not figure out where the "LF" bolt came from in reply #46. It looks like a battery hold down bolt but it is 3/8" not typical 5/16". One of my front fenders was replaced at some point, so maybe this 3/8" bolt got replaced at that time. I blasted some more fasteners today and will post those pictures for your collection.
I like the charts you made up, great information.
George.

I see the truck has a lift gate on it. And looks like body is sitting on a roll cart. Did you balance it on the lift gate while your wife operated the gate?

I ordered a new complete console from Heartbeat because the original one has many stripped out screw holes and a cracked door. I haven't received it yet so I can't compare them. Did I make a mistake if I am tiring to keep the car original in appearance? I have the front bracket. It is an early 69 if that matters.

Steve & Mark X22, I finally found the missing Air shield screw I was looking for. I thru it in with my front end sheet metal bolts. Any way I am sure this is it because when I took it out I remembered it was ground on one side like it hit the pavement or something. I am now questioning if the other holes I measured as .250" were filled in slightly from powder coating. I hate to put a 5/16" tap into it and open it up more but I have to find out what size bolt goes in there.I will let you know.

Marty, Glad to help out. I have learned sooo much here and just want to give back a little. I would hope some day to see a published judging rules to use as a guide line.
The blaster we use is a Eastwood bench top. Kind of small but you can roll it into the corner when not needed. I like "Aloxglass" from Grainger, aluminum oxide glass bead mix.Also uses our shop vac for dust control. Back to the bolts.
I wanted to take pictures of the fasteners before I blasted them for my records. These were all soaked in Evaporust overnight. The picture of the nuts with captured washers show allmost 2 different finishes but that might be from the Evaporust. I found 3 serrated washer bolts 2 I believe were on the horn brackets. The blaster bolt is from below the cross member and held the 396 AC only Air shield on. I remember thinking it got ground on the pavement or something. That picture is for BlackOut Steve. More to come.

I have been glass beading some of my 1969 front end bolts before phosphate, here are some pictures & quantity found. Built Nov. 68.
I have many more to clean and will photo those also.

Mark x22, you are correct 5/16" bolts. I have been looking at too many metrics or just can't see like I used to. Anyway I pulled out my subframe and shield to bolt it up.
The 2 bolts that go directly into the cross member are 5/16 with a .280" hole. But the other 4  holes only measure .250" so I don't know what screws go in there.The holes are not stripped, a 1/4" fastener is too small.
