4 bolts on the nose/hood?

Post by AZ_Mike » Mon Feb 04, 2019 6:43 pm

I'm very curious about the pre-existing bolts and rivet nuts located in various places of my 712 body and what their original purpose was.

I'm particularly interested in the four bolts on the front of the vehicle. They appear to be 8 mm bolts with 13 mm heads spaced 10 cm vertically and 100 cm horizontally. They are offset significantly towards the passenger side. The bolts going to nuts with reinforcing plates under the dash and in the glove box. What was the original purpose on the vehicle?

I am thinking they would be excellent mounting points for a hi-lift jack mount.

sounds like you are describing the antenna storage mounting locations.

Thanks to both of you. I think that is what I'll be doing. I better buy the jack first as that area is going to get a bit crowded. I was planning on putting 2 20 inch light bars on either side of the windshield washer nozzle.
