well ours is all wrong then...but I like it :) . We didn't put the extension over the boot, the boot goes up the extension. Just liked how it looked.

Nope, not kidding. I have buckets, bins and containers full of nuts angs bolts, but nothing fits. The studs are still rusty and bent needeing some crc and a wire brush. Thought the brain trust might just know what i need to order from McMaster Carr etc. Sorry you trouble you.

License plate light retaining nut size?

Need all 4...one light fell off as it's missing one stud and the other was missing the nut. The other light is held by friction...no nuts! Can anyone tell me if it's a standard size (what size) i can get at the home depot?...or where to get them in general if not?

Thanks!
