Default Dunes Flag??? What size is the nut?

I'm going to go and buy a nut and just weld it to my bumper but can't remember what size nut it is.

The reasons are:

1. I don't want to be on the ground holding it in place and trying to tighten it in front of DAR who I'll be getting the flag from.

2. No one down here really know's what silver lake is so it'll be a good conversation piece, "hey, why do you have nut welded there? " and I'll say something kick ass about silver lake

I would get the one that is used for to join allthread together. They are taller so you can seat the flag base real good not just a nut. And give them a call they should be able to tell you.

I have 5 or 6 flags in my garage, and all of them are 1/2"...but some are fine thread and some are coarse thread. When you buy one, get the one piece...stay away from the split two piece ones, they tend to break down at the bottom from the extra weight.
