    Mark,
    Just took a look at the website. Easy to navigate and cost is reasonable. Thanks for the heads-up.

    McMaster for sure. Their vast selection, hyper-efficient and no-nonsense website with logical filtering functions and access to drawings for all of their products makes them my go-to place.

    Yes that sounds like an elevator pitch but I swear I am not associate with McMaster. I just like them.

    That's one thing McMaster does very well. I can't fathom how they pull it off so effectively.

    Ebay

    Nearly as fasteners come from china, might as well buy in bulk direct. You will understand how much the hardware stores are making up screws and nuts.

    A friendly reminder, major load bearing bolts should not be stainless (suspension, steering, drivetrain, etc)

    Even the highest rated stainless bolts have much lower properties (tensile, proof load, yield strength) than a class 8.8 steel bolt.

    McMaster lists the stainless having a tensile strength of 100ksi and class 8.8 as 110ksi. Close enough that in non critical applications it won't matter, but I've wondered how long before corrosion damage lowers the strength of the class 8.8 below the stainless. Haven't looked into it much yet though.

    A challenge for you guys!

    Are you aware of ANY vendor that offers a Clevis Pin with these dimensions???

    Clevis pin.JPG

    Why do I need this? Well, I have bought Delorean Europe's vented rotors and given that the calipers are about 3/8" wider to accommodate the wider rotors, you need 3/8" longer Pad Retaining Pins (pn 109003), right? Well, the kit didn't come with longer clevis pins as expected; instead what I got was long cotter pins. A solution I am not entirely comfortable with...

    Worst case you can buy this...

    OR This, just put a cotter pin in both sides.
