May not be necessary and you may already have this covered, if not you might check with some other members that have done these recently to see if these too are a somewhat unusual thread pitch and where they are sourcing them if not available at hardware store etc.

It was many years ago when I did my drawers set up, but it seems like the bolts were different and there was a member that sourced them, but had to buy several dozen that they shared/sold to others.

I guess the seat belt bolts and possibly the seat mounting bolts are sometimes a rare pitch to keep folks from using non hardened bolts.
Thanks guys. I was able to source some at my local Ace Hardware. Got a couple of different lengths to ensure proper fitment with an extra trip to the parts store.

The last several weekends but I finished my drawers. The main Caracas was given to by local badass @BlueCruiser84. I built the drawers, wings, and covered the top. Camping/cooking stuff is in the bigger drawer on the ds and tools and more stuff I shouldn't carry is on the other side.

The box is attached by 4 turnbuckle and 2 bolts on the floor. probably won't fly out if I wreck.

I was just trying to save a fellow cruiserheads life. One minor front end collision would have put about 400 lbs of stuff through @davidp14 windshield. I’m assuming his head would have gone with it.

Going in today.

Old and busted on the right obviously, new and hotness on the left. Also have a new cat going on. I hit it with VHT primer then VHT silver. Maybe give it a little more chance against the excessive amount of salt they throw on the roads here.... Also have all of the factory mounting hardware since the muffler shop I took it to years ago cut all that off out of pure laziness. The one time I took the truck somewhere.....

Finally got the rear brakes wrapped up. The rotors were able to be turned, so that saved some money. New calipers, pads, and complete fluid flush. I was feeling motivated, so I decided to mount my IronMan winch. I had to open up the holes for the fairlead first. Primed up the bare metal, touched up the rock chips, and mounted it up. I still have to find a place to mount the control box and wire it up. One step at a time!

Hit a snag in replacing the exhaust. Everything is about an inch too far forward to line up w/ the hanger brackets. If I line it up, there's the same distance gap from the back of the converter flange to the muffler pipe flange. Only way it could be off that I can see is that the front cat is possibly too short. Now I'm suspecting that's why the shop cut the factory brackets and just made it work. The second cat is 11.5" which seems to be the right length. Oh well, why would I expect it to just work LOL.
