    Installing a stereo a while back one of the 4 stereo bolts dropped somewhere and couldn't find it. Now when I turn a corner I can hear it slide back and forth. Sounds like it's sliding a good foot across wherever it is. Any ideas?

    +1 to the magnet idea. Those things have saved my ass a bunch of times when working on motorcycles. I'd pry the radio out and run the magnetic pickup everywhere and see if you catch it. You can also try probing from the driver and passenger side footwells in towards the center.
