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.
