they are threaded and do take a nut but i'm not sure if they are part of the car. they protrude from the box frame and mine were rusted to the point where i snapped them off. maybe drill them out and use self tapping screws. i can't find them on realoem

I did the same thing when i was going to remove my shield for cleaning and painting... after the first one snapped off, I stopped. I figured they were welded to the car... but I'd certainly like to know more. If you can find the pitch off of the nut, you could always hardware store it i suppose...
