I posted my bent one on b5 nation on Facebook. Looks to be a weak point.

I didn't have with my first build either, now I have a ton. Same thing with green slime, after first builds you get all this stuff.

I Never go to the manufacturer for small parts like that especially if there just general fasteners. Go to any hobby shop and go to section where they have all the small nuts and screws that are made for any brand of car. Usually they are called Du-bro fasteners.
If they don't have the part your looking for the next best thing is Ebay. I have always been able to find what I need and shipping is always cheaper than the manufacturer as they usually charge 8-10 bucks to ship a 3 dollar part whereas Ebay merchants usually ship for a couple bucks

When installing the aluminum C block, do you need to put the lock nut on the top? The block is curved not allowing the nut to go all the way down flush.

If you need parts, either small quantities or large, this is the best bet.

Boltdepot.com

Rumor is, they're the main supplier to a whole TON of companies too. Unlike places were you have to order them by the dozens or hundreds, you can get smaller quantities here. Come in nice labeled bags too.
