    Can someone with a 32 ford coupe help me with the proper hardware. I would like to find out what hardware is needed to mount the 32 grill shell onto my radiator. Not the screws on top but the four screws on both sides. A picture would help too. Thanks in advance.

    For concours restoration, I don't know. I have always used 10-24 button head stainless and stainless nuts. There easy to get at Home Depot etc.

    Well, I temporarily have a 1/4 inch countersunk screw in there but I don't think that is correct. Not concours restoration.

    If you are looking for factory type then you need 12-24 pan head screws, 9/16 long and black oxided. The nuts were 7/16 square, 5/32 thick and plain steel.
    Like others have posted I use stainless button heads.

    If you are looking for exact restoration quality, Roy Nacewicz, www.fordbolts.com, has the proper screws. Part no. D-540, 12-24 binding head, in S-2 Ford finish.

    Just a hot rod, not a restoration. Thanks everyone.

    Hell bowie the holes in your shell must be flogged out if you can fit 7/16" dia bolts in there or are the nuts 7/16" AF?

  12. Not flat head AKA counter sunk, pan head or button head.
    pan heads tend to be not as tall as button heads.
    If 10-24 is the correct size, the #10 will be shorter than the 1/4" hole you're filling now.
