Guys, the support rods under the hood, where they meet the fenders, is that supposed to be a stud that it goes onto? A stud that is fully threaded with a nut in the center so you can tighten it up? Then the rod goes on the top part of the stud and a nut secures it down ?

I have my blasted and epoxied rods out of storage and those studs and nuts arent with them. I just want to double check before I go crazy looking for them.

Anyone have a pair in case I dont find mine soon? I dont want this to delay my painting the body.

Thanks guys.

Mine just attached to the fenders with the bolt that holds the fender. Not a specifik bolt or stud just a normal fender bolt. At the firewall is also no specifik bolt. Just a fenderbolt with a nut and washer. The fender brace goes under the little lip on the firewall, not on top.

The support rod has.a.nut weled on one end and that's the.firewall end. I'm sure mine had , as well as.other 73s I've had, have a stud there and a flanges nut on top. The rod is slotted on the fender end.

There is a good picture in the Gallery under 1973 Chevelles/Malubu of a survivor car, very good under hood reference pics. Itshows the stud and nut like Joe described. Now, don't know if that's a 1973-only thing or not.

Hmmm...if these cars had studs for the fender end to fit over, that's news to me. I've removed a number of these rods (including a set not long ago from a '73 Monte) and never found any like that.

The Only thing I know of is the Firewall side having a Nut welded to bottom of rod The you put bolt On from top of Firewall side and the Welded nut is what secures it to firewall on all I have seen anyway. Is it Possible when you Blasted it separated from the Rod Joe ?    I mean if it Happened its an Easy peasy fix just take screw from it to Lowes or Similar and match it up to a 4 sided nut and Tack it back on

Ok, searched this morning and no luck.  Anyone have a pair of these studs to sell ?
I'm just going to use a fender bolt for now since the rods arent going in anytime soon.  Motor has to go in first.

I've had two Chevelles, a '73 and my current Malibu, & four Elcos of the G3 era, '73, '75, '76, and '77, and all had the same braces.

I have a spare pair here Joe. How about 25 bucks plus the shipping ? I have a mailing tube that will hold them.....
