    Anyone have a suggestion on how to mount a moto-meter with a radiator cap onto my noseless grille?

    Currently, I have just the moto-meter and the bolt is long enough to go through both the grille shell and the fiberglass underneath. But, when I add the radiator cap into the stack, the bolt is just not quite long enough.

    Given the way the bolt is made, with an extension below the threads, I don’t think a connector nut with work.

    I had thought to just widen the hole in the fiberglass and tighten the bolt to the shell, but then I lose one of three anchor points between the shell and the fiberglass.

    Any thought?

    How about using a coupling nut?

    Thanks. I was just thinking that might work, after all, just not in the way that I was originally imagining it. I’ll give it a try!
