The 7/16 UNF bolts can work loose in the adapter plates which is why the Elan factory conversion uses captive bolt heads in the adapter plate and nyloc nuts rather than bolts screwed into the adapter plates. If you screw into the adpater plates make sure you use good lock washers, high stength loctite and torque properly. To be extra sure you also should consider drilling and wiring the bolt heads.
I wish I had followed your advice re: lock wiring. I had one come apart today at the track.....
