    The vapor honed parts turned out great. I've seen similar results on a few youtube restoration channels and I've always been impressed. If I could justify the investment I'd love to get a cabinet...

    One other option you may want to consider is 316 stainless bolts. They're not as strong as steel, but they won't rust.

    On my E46 BMW I replaced a bunch of studs with these SS bolts because I was...

    I looked through what McMaster has listed and I'd probably go with the high strength (class 10) zinc plated you linked to. Just double check the thread pitch of the bolts to make sure you're getting...

    I'd leave off the lock washers in favor of a distorted thread/oval toplock, or spiralock type locking nut.

    I can't stand how facebook sorts, hides, and prioritizes certain posts and comments over others and turns what would be a logical flow of information into an otherwise jumbled mess. The mass exodus...

    Just a follow up on that Bricklin on BAT with 62 miles... It sold for over 100k, shattering the previous record by around 40k.

    I'm following along and find the updates with the clutch and trans to be really interesting. I'm sure you're already aware, but when you go to reinstall the selector shaft roll pins, you'll want to...

    Use the tow loops in the front (Green Arrows). Do not use control arms (Red Arrows) or you will bend them.

    I don't think the service bulletin ever revised the banjo bolt torque specs, so the manual should be correct.

    Each taillight board is somewhat independent of the other, so the fact that the brake lights are not coming on either side unless the headlights are on makes me think there is something going on with...

    What are the torque specs you're using for each hollow bolt size?

    Could your torque wrench possibly be out of calibration?

    The large parts and fasteners that I had re-plated in zinc are holding up really well. It's been about 10 years and I've put around 10k miles on.
