I broke a bolt that holds a fender on. I have drilled the old bolt out, now what? Can I just insert a (hydra-coil??) or do i have to rethread the hole. thanks

I'm a B'fieldite too! If the nut is still there, just run a tap in and you are good to go. Doesn't take a really good thread to do the job. Even if you need to drill and tap the next bolt size, no big deal. Fender bolts are way low tech. Just be sure you go back w/ plated bolts and anti-sieze.
