I bought SS rear fender clutch head bolts and they aren't the same size as the originals. In fact there isn't a clutch head bit/driver which fits them correctly. They do look nice though.

Carl, that's when you get inventive and create your own clutch head driver

I didn't need to in my case. The inside of my bed has bedliner on it which grabs the bolt head/washer allowing me to just tighten the nuts. I had an assortment of slot screwdrivers at the ready just in case.

While I've seen Clutch heads before and once had a Yankey screwdriver that had clutchhead tips. I changed mine out for Phillips head just so the next owner won't have to spend $35 on a driver and 4 sizes to remove 8 screws.

By far my favorite is a torx head.

Can’t begin to tell you how much I hate the name Stovebolt.

Spend the $20 and give the set as a gift to the new owner (put it in the glove box).
