No problem, let us know what you think about the kit when you get it.

I received the nut / bolt kit last Monday.
Nice quality stuff and probably more than I will need to reassemble the car.
I checked with our fastener supplier and he said that these bolts (stamped 10.9) are equivalent to grade 8 fasteners. It's nice to know that I can use them everywhere.
The o.d. Of the washers for the M6 bolts is a bit smaller than the o.d. Of the flanged head of the M6 bolts. But our supplier hooked me up with some larger yellow zinc plated washers so all is good

I noticed the washer o.d. thing too. I was wondering if you really need the washers, since of the flanged head?

If the backside of the head was serrated I might leave them off as well as a lock washer. But if I'm using lock washers where the bolts thread into captured nuts which is the case for most of the body panels. I prefer to use a flat washer between the lock washer and the body or bracket. I don't know. Is this overkill?

Although it would look much cleaner without the flat or lock washer

Too many options

The washers will protect the finish for repeated disassembly and reassembly...maybe?

I know this was a while ago now. But I'm in the market for a lot of new nuts, bolts and washers and thought a kit must exist. The eBay seller linked isn't selling, but there are loads still, anyone have any recent experiences or is there a 510 specific kit that's not been made (and I can't find)
Thanks.

Thank you, they cost more to ship than to buy :shock: Think I'll have to research and try buy locally. Thanks.

I am sure you can work it out, just measure all of them and write it down!! :wink:
As crazy as it sounds... I actually did this when I restored my car. The zinc plater wanted all the fasteners for the car in one coffee can. It was a monster project to sort them back out again to each assembly.

Let me see what I can dig up.

Did you find the list?

I'm after so many random nuts and bolts that were either too rusted or since been lost.

Hey sorry, lost track of this.

We did this 20 years ago and my memory was a bit more optimistic than my approach. Unfortunately I don't have a list per se, and sadly what I do have might probably won't help you much.

Here's the backstory: When we restored the car we disassembled everything that could possibly be taken apart. At the time (pre-internet, pre-digital photography) we took film photos of the more complex parts to try and remember how they went together. We put the fasteners for every assembly in individual ziplock bags. Eventually the entire car was a pile of labeled ziplock bags filled with parts.

When we went to the zinc plating company the guy tells us that he wants all the parts "in one single coffee can" and that he wouldn't be doing the job by assembly. As I remember we had over a 1,000 fasteners so this freaked us out a bit. How the hell would we remember what belongs to what?

We figure the only way to keep track of everything was to create an inventory card for each assembly. We didn't need to necessarily write down thread pitch but we need something where we could quickly identify the silhouette of a fastener. SO that's what we did.

Here are the Index Cards I could find, i think some of them we just put the fasteners on top of the card and took photos
(N= Nut, W= Lock Washer, LW= Lock Washer, etc)

In retrospect it doesn't look very clear, but at the time it surprisingly worked very well.

I made this list when I partially disassembled my car a few years ago. No guarantees that it's all correct, but it might help a bit.
