    If you order the VF III's they will come with the bolts that you need. If you bought a set without the bolts I can bring one to work with me tomorrow and give you measurements.

    Hey David...

    I'm pretty certain the bolts Only need to be 5mm longer to account for the thickness of the spacer..

    There would be a real danger of bottoming out bolts to much longer than that..??

    You know yourself the problems that could cause..!!!

    The plate is 3/8 thick(10mm) and the paper gaskets are about 1mm thick each. So I will be adding 12mm thickness. Thats why I used 12mm longer bolts so the threads will go in same depth as stock ones.

    If using 5 mm longer bolts, then the bolts would go into threads would be 7mm shallower.

    I think we may have different spacer plates Woody?
