1948 Chevy front sheet metal fastener kit

Does anybody have any idea if such a kit is available for these cars? I saved all my old parts but I do not want to reuse 60+ year old fasteners. My brother bought a kit for his 55 chev and it was cheap and made it so easy to put everything back together. It was all lableled and came with fender gaskets.

Bolts

If you go to LMCtruck.com you will find bolt kits for grille, bumper, hood hinge, and body for your truck.

My bad! Sorry about that! For some reason I assumed it was a truck.

still ...the fasteners are the same if you can just match them up to the new one you'll be ok theres a lot of fastener companies. (J clips)? If times not an issue you could always spend a sunny afternoon at the bone yard collecting clips and bolts ...they might not even charge you...but if you want all the bolts labled ,I dont think you can get assembly kits for that car...

If you call Chevs of the 40's, they will tell you if this is complete or what extra items you will need. Very helpful people.

I tell you DBM, if you need parts like that for 37-54 Chevies (and a lot of those parts will work on other GM's as well), Chevs of the 40's has a lot of stuff. And I have always found the staff knowledgeable and helpful.
Case in point is my firewall pad. Called them up and said I was thinking about building my own since all of the factory holes weren't needed but I was going to have to put in new holes where none existed before. I really didn't want to tackle building my own. The lady at Chevs of the 40's said no problem. They were able to have them made with no holes. Done deal.
Prior to that, when I was buying sheetmetal for the car, I called because the drawing wasn't very clear on a particular part I thought I needed. The guy on the phone went and got the part, told me the approximate dimensions, and then proceeded to tell me that most of his customers return them because they really don't fit most people's needs! Cost himself a sale but won a loyal customer.
