on my 66 SS my radiator support where the radiator bolts to it the welded in nuts are striped on two of the four nuts. does anyone make "J" nuts long enough to use to repair shy of welding on new nuts? its a completed car and don't want to remove and I really don't want to weld on new nuts.

Post a pic of the loose bolt,
How about a longer bolt with a back up nut?

I am using the longer bolt with a hex nut. But I think it looks bad. Just trying to make it less noticeable

I used J-B weld to fix a bolt hole, and it worked fine. Put J-B in the hole put grease on the bolt so you can remove it later. Screw bolt in let sit for 24 hours. I think I found directions on J-b website or called them.
