Chris, I know I have at least one hex bolt at my shop and maybe several but I fear it is not usable so will have to check again. I don't recall for sure but it seems to me that some of the threads were bad on the one I remember seeing so if anyone else can help you, by all means, go for it!

Hi Don - thanks, but David (Flackmaster) says he has, and I have PM'd him and hope he will sell me a couple. Chris.

Wanted to post a quick update on my bumper project. I know for you guys who have had multiple cars and done extensive restoration work, that 'fresh chrome' is nothing novel, but this is the first chroming I have ever had done, and I have to say, it is pretty impressive! It's like taking factory-new pieces out of the box; mine turned out absolutely flawlessly.
I sandblasted and sprayed the metal brackets, bought new rubber fender grommets from Steele, got the correct Packard bumper-guard hex bolts from the Flackmaster (huge thank you, David) and new tear-drop carriage bolts from John Ulrich and these all contributed to the shiny new duff on my Six. Thanks for the help, info and advice on getting these bumper guards correctly accessorized; I think I have pretty close to a factory finish! Much apprec. Chris.
