The parts book says the nut is 1/4" - 20, which I think makes it UNF. But unless the photos are wrong, the "collar" on the bolt doesn't seem to be the correct square-section that the Viva bumper has. It might just be the photo, though.

You do see them at autojumbles and the like. I bet I'll see some at Race Retro this weekend if I can make it.

The one in the top left of the photo here looks like it might be about right: https://www.spaldingfasteners.co.uk/chr ... r-bolts-4/

Hi Alan,

I contacted Namrick but they don't offer anything with the square head like I need for the HC. Thanks for your suggestion though.

I used the 1/4" unf x 1" from Nanwick. They actually have 2 flats on them so I just filed another 2 flats for them to fit. The heads are smaller than the original rear bumpers though.

I got some metric (aargh) M6 x 16mm ones on ebay (seller: kayfast1), with washers and nyloc nuts all in A2 stainless.

also available with plain nuts:

Just need to find the bumper brackets (HB front centre ones) I've lost since dismantling them, or replacement ones.
