Tail light panel honeycomb fasteners.

I am very disappointed in their fasteners. Pretty much none of them are like the originals. Makers marks different. Different finish, different lengths. And the say MCA approved as original.

I did the same thing with mine, and also noticed that several of the different kinds of fasteners weren't the same as factory, but for the most part - they worked.  If you're just rebuilding a car to be a driver, they work and the convenience of coded individual baggies is awesome.  But I can see where trying to do a faithful restoration would be problematic... especially considering the Master Fastener kits aren't exactly cheap.

I dont know if this is the corrected length bolt kit or not. Maybe Don could verify that for me? Im finally getting around to install this, and of course, I cant find the hardware bag that came with it. So thinking about just ordering a new set, if they are the longer bolts.

Tried to fit mine today as well and found the shaft to be too short, might end up with some double sided tape and not bother with the nuts and fastners
OK this information is depressing. Call me naive but I was really counting on these different fastener kits to be correct. WTH

Then what are we paying for? Since it is becoming obvious the suppliers won't spend the time and effort - do we need a fastener list for items we find that correctly replace/source different fasteners used on our cars?
