If anyone knows of such an insert or some other way of filling this in could you please share where to find it or how to fill it?

Thanks.
You can just use a regular flat/flush mount bolt for those spots, it doesn't need to be the original tapered-head bolt. Use hex or torx style for the replacement, whichever you prefer.

NonRubicon - I am using regular bolts with button type Allen heads but they still pull down into the counter sink and cause the bracket to bend. I was hoping someone would know of some kind of nylon or plastic piece that would fill in the hole.

NHfireYJ - Do you have a link. I looked for them last night but couldn't find them.

Thanks all.

For the bolts just use a washer slightly larger than the countersunk hole.

C&C on ebay has a different user name.... Here.

Here is what I did,

Do you know what was good about the good old days? I wasn't good, And I wasn't old!

Senators and Congressman should wear uniforms like NASCAR drivers so we could identify their corporate sponsors....

laybackman - I thought about that, but the hard doors will hit them. My problem is compounded by the fact that I received the wrong drivers side arm so I thought cutting as you did would solve my problem until I held them in place and opened the door. I am looking for an arm that is correct. I received two arms just alike and neither of them fit either side correctly. With some bending and twisting I made the right side work, but there doesn't seem to be any hope for the left.
