After 6 hours of sanding, grinding, and wire wheeling, I got the replacement subframe for my 78 nova cleaned up...looking good after several coats of gloss black if I do say so myself. Looks even better with the new energy suspension bushings all in place now...however, I cant find a torque spec for the body mount bolts. I keep hearing that I should just bolt them to factory spec...well, I cant find factory spec either! Help!

I have allways just tightened them as tight as I could get them, then a little more. I dont know what specs are, but what I have done has not given out yet. Good luck
