Well,


There are two studs on the bottom of the radiator frame that sometimes break off and then need to have the stud that Toyota welded into place ground out, and a new bolt of your choice welded back in.

There also should be a 8mm diameter or so rod that attaches to the top of the radiator frame on the passenger side, and then travels rearward to the rib on the passenger side of the firewall, just to the left of your data tag, right where the angle meets the strait riser. Look there....you will see a hole with no bolt in it...that is for the support rod to the top of the radiator frame. You could easily fab something up to replace this if you do not have the original...


As far as the bolts that would attach the radiator and shroud to the frame, those are simply a 8mmx1.25x15mm or 20mm long..whichever will work, and your local hardware store should be able to help you out with these....oh wait...what is your issue with a hardware store?


You certianly can purchase the bolts from SOR if you want....they have hardware listed by diameter and length in the catalog....I am sure that it is on line also.


Good luck!
