Are you not using mcmaster.com? Hardware store prices for fasteners are crazy. For your nice finish body bolts in stainless, I think Nakatanenga's kit is by far the best. Otherwise, you just need to get good at speccing and ordering fasteners in quantities from McMaster-Carr or Fastenal. There aren't that many sizes really, a whole bunch of M8x25 and M6x20 and the a smattering of longer M10s and a few big long M12s back on the rear crossmember (that's admittedly oversimplifying it, but it's mainly just M6, M8, M10, and a few M12's in a variety of lengths). You're going to try to be comprehensive about it, but until you have extra bolts sitting around, you just have to get accustomed to the fact that some days your work will stop while you drive down to Fastenal or place another McMaster order

I've ordered from McMaster before and I ended up with a bunch of extra bolts I've never used. Parkrose Hardware actually has pretty good prices. I haven't ordered from Fastenal before. I'm looking up bolts on there now and a lot aren't in stock, but it looks like they'd be here in a couple days, which is fine. So far the prices look comparable. For the propshaft bolts, I got flanged grade 8 3/8 x 1 1/4 (they didn't have 1 1/8 length and it looks like McMaster and Fastenal don't either) oil & phosphate finish and they were 94 cents each. They're $1.11 each at Fastenal. Although they also have a zinc finish for 50 cents. I guess I'll add a bunch to my cart and see how it comes out.

When I add items in my cart at Fastenal online it doesn't give me the option of picking it up in the store at the checkout page. Do I have to go into the store to put the order in and do they charge shipping to the store for not-in-stock items?

I found a thread talking about Fastenal. It sounds complicated. The hardware store is nice because there's no minimum quantity to buy. It's all self-serve loose items in bins. And the guys are always so nice and helpful. That's worth something to me.

I only have been to Fastenal stores, never online. I only buy bulk fasteners for generic applications like body bolts, chassis fittings etc. if the part rotates, flexes, or moves in any way, I buy original fasteners.

It is true that people have pets that look like them. ;-)

That's a good idea. I just don't want a lot of bolts left over though.

I'll paint them. That one in the foreground is one of the old ones though. The new ones look pretty good, but they could use a fresh coat.

Maybe he does lol. He's the neighbor cat though. My cat is the calico bobtail. She passed away on August 15th. She was 19. It's been rough. She was my little buddy. Today I found photos of her when she was a kitten.



In the window with my brother's cats.

As if the finely coiffed hair wasn't awkward enough, the cats put this in the top 10 most bizarre non-Lea Stonce threads.

I'm a big fan of cats, but the "evil grin" thing has me spooked!

Those aren't very nice things to say. I guess I'll limit pictures of myself and cats.

Don't take the comments too seriously - I don't think anyone means any harm by them.

Sorry to hear about your cat. I love pets more than people. Here is my cat, well my ex-GF's cat. I really miss her. $4k to get the sewing needle she ate out at UPenn vet. Worth every penny.

Andrew,

It's all good. What's funny is the first thing I thought was, 'He has a really nice smile.' ... if that counts? And since we're sharing baby cat photos..here's our Tiger when he was an infant.

evilfij,
That must have been so awful for her to eat a sewing needle. I'm glad you could save her. She looks like a really nice kitty. I feel so blessed my cat never had anything unfortunate happen to her like getting ran over by a car when she was outside or any major health issues. She was like a kitten up until the last few days of her life. It was hard to accept it was the end and now she's gone. But I have lots of good memories and I believe she'll be waiting for me when I follow her into the afterlife.

Thanks Carmen. Aww Tiger was so cute. Here's pictures of mine again when she was a kitten in case anyone missed them.

This dude right here just had a major respiratory infection and I thought he was a goner. At 18 he doesn't have a lot of fight left. Cataracts, arthritis, broken meow, etc.

Congrats, you're thread has been hijacked by cats. At least it wasn't beagles.

I'd actually prefer more cats and less BMW content.
