How many bed bolts needed 53-56?

How many bed bolts are needed to hold down the skid strips, the flanges on the bedsides and at the rear crossmember of a 6 1/2' bed for a 53-56 F-100?

I am using some of the old bolts that were on my old bed. Some are rusted and I will replace them. I am not sure because a couple of the bolts were bent and I threw them out and some nuts and washers may have been lost. I know it is in the 60's.

The Midfifty catalog lists the number in their bed bolt kit as 67.

Thanks, Charlie. Now why didn't I think of looking there first?

I do that all the time. Ask a question on here, someone tells me the answer and where they found it. I'm surprised I don't have a dent in my forehead...
