Bolt kit

i have an ex-mod 110 I'm pulling apart to get to a rusty bulkhead. It's clear I'll want to replace pretty much all the fasteners, 25 years of Alberta winters have not been kind. Does anyone market a complete kit for the entire rig?

I think there might be a list in the FAQ or Tech section on here. I did find a company in the UK that sells kits for your truck so you can buy from one company.

I've tried searching on here but sifting through the returns comes up with few leads, broken links and wasted time. My search-Fu is no good though.

I've seen some partial kits but no complete sets from the uk but it's usually stainless......not sure if that's the route to go.
JimC was putting kits together....Ill hit him up but it looks like he's out.

I'm knee deep in a building complete bolt kits. Zinc or Cad plated metric hardware for the standard stuff and LR OEM for the specialized and critical applications.

Probably still a couple weeks away from having the complete list and costs.

Great plan on the bolts. There are a bunch of standard sized bolts and some odd balls (bulkhead bolts, long ones for the B-pillars on a 110 station wagon, floorboard hardware, the big ones through the frame for various things etc.).

I'm working on compiling and updating Jim C's list and trying to gauge interest. I guess the big question is what would folks be willing to pay for the kit?

Cost plus x%. Be open about the profit and I'm sure no-one care.

What to pay???

Honestly probably a lot.....

I would want the kit, for like everything, inside and out, in either oem finish or stainless, in zip lock bags labeled, with the correct lock washers and/or flat washer, nylock nuts where needed non-nylock where needed….etc, etc….

My point is a “correct” kit, and the bagging and labels are important….if I had to dig through a couple hundred nuts and bolts I could just order them as I go along and have spares for say the next 100 years….

I would probably be willing to pay 2-3x what the items actually cost if that level of effort was put into the kit.

I would say minimum you should double your money at least for a correct and complete kit.

Kevin
