Well I decided to tackle the install on this today. Things were going smooth until I went to install the fairlead C-brackets with the 10 x 1.5 x 20mm bolts.
While inserting the bolts, I noticed it was a tight fit..I figured it must have been the paint on the inside of the threads(big mistake).

As I used more pressure to fit this bolt in, I feel a snap! The weld holding the nut on the other side of the bracket broke off. It turns out that the bolts are not matching the grain of the nut.

I double checked to make sure these were in fact the proper bolts and they should be..Those are the only ones of that size left. I had the same issue with the 2nd C-bracket.

Now it's a no brainer..I will hit up my local hardware store and buy a new nut and bolt, HOWEVER how will I know what strength to get? The bolt has the number 10.9 on it. Is this the strength? Also, would I have to get the nut welded back on or should on not worry about that? It just looked like a spot weld to keep it in place. I don't have access to a welder, so would something else work?

10.9 is a Metric Grade 8 bolt, if you can access the nut with a wrench to hold it I don't see a need to reweld it. You might want to put some locktite on it though, not sure I'd use red maybe blue locktite.
