help with Spec Tricross Sport front fender attachment?

Hi, figured more people here would have put fenders on Tricross's.
Rode last summer on my 2010 without fenders, meant to get them on and never did. Today got the rear on fine, but in tackling the front have run into a problem and am wondering how any of you dealt with the front brake bracket anti-shudder doohickey.

For those familiar, the bolt that runs through the fork and that holds on the anti-shudder brace, doesnt go all the way out of the back--so you can not put a fender bracket over or through this bolt (as it doesnt stick out)
-also the rear tightening nut/thing that goes onto this bolt is a specific shape, and fits "over" the bolt with threaded bits inside tightening down.

I would be grateful for any Tricross owners to divulge how you improvised a front fender.

being a carbon fork, I dont see how just running a much longer bolt through the fork would deal with this, as the area for the tightening is recessed into the back of the fork.

thanks in advance for ideas. Will stick this up in touring also.

First option
https://problemsolversbike.com/produc...on_fender_nuts

The second option is to head over to mcmaster.com and order a longer screw, a spacer, and a nut that will fit the hanger and fender. Part numbers that I came up with from some measurements: 94000A037(acorn nut), 94669A079(spacer), 91292A199(longer screw) If you have a good Hardware store near you, you may be able to find these things for cheaper and in lower quantities there.
