Does that mean that you removed the rivets, threaded the holes that the rivets were in, then slotted the bottom of the sheet metal shroud to provide the adjustment? What size bolts size you use?

two slots in the shroud and threaded the thermostat brackets. I now 
have the choice of removing the shroud without removing the 
thermostat. Also, because of the slots, I can adjust the thermostats 
simply by sliding the thermostat assembly forward for a snug fit, 
then tightening the bolts. The arrangement looks almost stock. And of 
course, thermostat replacement is just a matter of twisting it off 
the rod, with adjustments made easy by the slots. -ron 65,66
