Hit the post button before I was done with the above post. Which lower valance bolts are correct?
Thanks, Doc.

Doc.  After looking at Chicks post on the amazing 69 Z28 survivor in the survivor cars section, on pg 8, I'm thinking the first set you show would be correct.  The chrome bolts may be a bit long though.

I used the first set you posted above Danzo on my white 69Z, with a reproduction front spoiler. The kit works fine, but I thought some of the holes on the spoiler were not spot on. I seemed a couple so everything would fit nice.
Looked good for about 4 months, when I hit my first high curb in a parking lot...lol
I got it tweaked back where it is suppose to go, and have grazed a few more things since, (steep drive ways). Good thing the reproduction spoilers are only $20. :)

I have sourced an original set of hardware. Just missing the 2 3792420 washers. Does anyone have a source? I see AMK has them (30 dollar minimum order), Classic Muscle (.50 each 10 dollars shipping).
Thanks, Doc.

Sorry meant to say "I reamed a couple of holes, and then it fit nicely".

 I am surprised a hardware store would not have the correct washers. Seems like the Fastenal Hardware by me has most everything, or can get it. I understand markings on bolts, but for nuts and washers they have been helpful.

I've been hesitant to install rods with my spoiler I was told by a  guy way back if you found that curb while paring at 7-11 that the rods would bend lower fender - cant confirm this but what have you guys seen? I thought about getting nylon bolts so if impacted they would shear before doing any harm?

I was going slow each time it happened and it was just enough to crack the spoiler on the outer passenger side edge. I run the outer rods only.  No fender damage.
