I'm kinda in the same boat as you. I just won't be assembling the front clip until another month.

I do want to ask you, what PY part number did you use for the u-nuts? I don't see them in the picture of their front end bolt kits. I've ordered from Ames and OPGI and neither of them have u-nuts in their front end bolt kits.

That's odd that it wouldn't include u-nuts...
How is it a "complete" kit without them ? Did you call Ames and ask about it ?

I didn't call them, I just returned one set and kept the other.
I did find the u-nuts in the Performance Years catalog - part # RPF180.

They're $4 each!!! I'll need somewhere close to 20. Ouch!

Try this place... Restoration hardware - AMK Products Inc ! ....they make most of the reproduction hardware that the vendors sell. It may be less expensive.

$4 each X 20 nuts = $80. Even at $3 each, that's $60...
