OK so, I ordered the mounting plate, it should be here tomorrow or so and was going to install my wheel pants, My A&P will be supervising. I remember a converstaion sometime about having 1 long bolt go somewhere special. Any info on if I have the right stuff to install them? anything to be careful of? The different length bolts have me worried.

I have 8 bolts.:
1-about an inch long
5-about 7/8 of an inch long
2 - about 3/4 of an inch long.

Something doesnt seem right, if i remember correctly, there are 4 holes on each side so the number of bolts seems correct but only having the 1 long one worries me, and where do they go?
