4200 M138 Spyder Top Middle Bow Bolt

Hey All. If this happened to me, on both sides, chances are it might happen to you. Plus, if I lucked into a solution that worked for just a few bucks, maybe it can help you...

I was missing both of these bolts. Previous owner had used a simple thru bold solution, where a shoulder bolt that rides on and pivots on the bushing in the opposite part, is needed.
The bolts I am talking about hold the middle bow of the convertible top to the main top mechanism. They allow it to pivot forward and back. You might find other articles that talk about the importance of having elastic straps that keep this bow pulled back, so it does not bind. Well it also need to stay bolted, while being able to pivot.

These bolts I found on Amazon, actually fit perfectly. Hope it helps someone:


416 Stainless Steel Shoulder Screw, Plain Finish, Hex Socket Drive Tolerance, 10mm Shoulder Diameter, 10mm Shoulder Length, M8-1.25 Metric Coarse Threads (Pack of 5)
