Is this better or comparable to the retention hardware with the inserts AAL sells? I'm sure it's cheaper.For anyone doing this mod, as someone mentioned somewhere else, please, please consider purchasing the fender rentention hardware or something similar. Your fenders become extremely flimsy without it and I almost lost one on the way to work.
Until my hardware comes in, I did find a quick easy solution from Lowe's that ended up working really well.
1 bolt + 1 washer, with a washered nut on backside.
