    Bonnet Bolts and Rear Bumper Mounts

    Hi, does anyone know what bolts are used on mk1 escort bonnet crossmembers? i took mine out then my bonnet flexed and i cant see the thread anymore, now my car is at the panel beaters where they can move the bonnet back into position but they need the bolts

    and while my car was at a previous panel beaters, some jerk fucked around with my outer rear bumper mounts, best bet to have useable ones again is to get some cuts from another escort and have them welded in there?

    bolts that hold bonnet to hinges are 5/16 UNF
    Not sure what you mean about bumper brackets, but in UK they bolt on, not weld.

    sorry i mean the holes in the car that the bolts go through, theres a little flat patch where the the crush tube type thing butts up against the car, its been replaced with a rugged hole and the flat patch has replaced with some steel that follows the curve of the car, which is useless in all forms!!
