Photo below will give you the measurements of OEM T-bolts, at least for the ones on the tub. The front fender ones don't have the stand-off, just straight 1/4-20 threaded studs due to the bulge/bead at the bottom of the fenders. Give you some idea of the size needed for the Elevator bolts.

You wouldn't recommend painting without taking the rockers off? Or wouldn't recommend dealing with the rusted bolts?


And here were the elevator bolts that I believe were mentioned: LINK

I have no idea what you're paying for the paint job but you've already put enough work into it to afford the time to have an even better job by painting where the rocker guards are. I would not consider not taking them off.
