Im instaling my fuel tank in a 67 this weekend and I need to know what type of bolts are used on the tank straps, no one offers tank strap bolts? It looks like regular carrage bolts, if this is rite what size and how long? Im using new straps, should i use long bolts to reach the straps and cut off the excess?

I used a 5/16x3" carriage bolt when I re-did my tank straps. I seated the carriage bolt to the upper mount with a washer and nut, then used another nut to tighten up the strap.



I didn't cut them off after tightening, but you probably could. They don't show when the bumper is on.
