Default Nylocs/IVA

After I uploaded my last set of photos Peter kindly pointed out that some of my bolts didn't have quite enough thread sticking through the nuts to satisfy most IVA examiner. They like to see 2 complete turns.
Having gone back over them the ones in question are really the lower front shock mounts. The bolts are the recommended Marlin length with a washer at each end.
My question is whether exmainators are going to object to omitting either or both washers to get enough length through the nut. Or is the only safe course of action a longer bolt.
If the longer bolt is needed would they then object to 1/2 inch sticking through? I know I will on cosmetic grounds.
