Screw size/type for inner rear wheel tub splash shields

Good morning all. Wondering if someone can help me out with the screw type/size that I need (looks like three on each side) to mount my inner rear wheel tub splash shields? I have searched the forum but could not find an answer. Backstory..... I had my truck in a shop and when the did all the disassembly they did not bag and mark all the hardware. UGHHHH!!! I now have the truck (pieces) back and we are putting it back together slowly. I am trying to buy new hardware when needed and then with some of the hardware it is still not that rusty and usable. Unfortunately I don't have a donor truck that I can pull hardware from or refer to for screw size/type etc. Since I am on that topic where is the best place to purchase an assembly manual for the 69 C10? Thanks so much guys. I will try to put together build post for my truck. It has been a work in progress for sometime now but it is coming along slowly.

I think the two top ones are 5/16 bolts and nuts. I installed the ones on the Longhorn a couple of months ago but the holes didn't line up very good so I had to use 1/4" bolts on it. The bottom one uses a clip with the nut attached (J-nut or U-nut) and uses the same type bolt that is used for the front sheet metal.

Are the bolts threaded into the sheet metal channel piece for the splash shields or are there J nuts slid over the ends? Hard to tell by the picture.

Glad I could help out on the build Pete....

Going by memory, that bracket is threaded to accommodate the captured washer sheet metal screws. I would have depicted the J-nuts if needed as they served as a visual guide for rebuilding. The J-nut shown affixes to the lower, inner rear fender.

Re: Screw size/type for inner rear wheel tub splash shields

Deadhead Thanks so much for the reply and pictures. So apparently I am in need of those two C brackets that attach to the shields. Any idea where I can get my hands on two of them and anyone know what the part number / name may be? I have not been able to find them and unfortunately I don't have any access to a donor vehicle or scrap yards with any C10's near me. Thanks again everyone.

I don't have immediate access to my pickup at the moment to confirm the C-channels are necessary. I suspect they are but the pic linked above shows an example from my Blazer and there's a chance the attachment for a pickup differs. Maybe someone else can chime in to clarify.

If you need the C-channel brackets I'd pay the $25 yearly member dues needed to post a WTB ad on the parts forum. It's money well spent IMO and I'll bet you'll have luck securing a pair.
