OUR ONLINE CHECKOUT is CLOSED and we are NOT accepting any NEW orders at this time.

We are still fulfilling and shipping previously submitted and/or delayed order requests (as product availability allows) UNTIL NOVEMBER 15th 2022.

But after November 15th, all still pending backordered unshipped items will be automatically CANCELLED **(except for any special ordered drop-shipped or made/machined-to-order items).

Our ability to respond to emails is greatly hampered by being under-staffed during this downsize transition time. But we continue to endeavor to answer email inquiries as best we can. And we will continue responding to emails through until early March 2023 because we are wholly committed to resolving any other issues that may arise from previous sales. It is still UNCERTAIN, but we may re-open a substantially downsized version of our store again in the Spring of 2023.

We sincerely appreciate your patience, understanding during this period of restructuring and/or closing. And a huge thank you to all of you whose support and loyalty we have been the beneficiary of over the 23 years that we have worked diligently to support the information and parts needs of the aircooled VW community!

Item Features
IMPORTANT about Stainless Steel. Stainless is a series of alloy steels which contain at least 12% chromium. Such steels will not rust when exposed to the weather. These parts (except lock washers) are made from various 300 series stainless steels which contain at least 18% chromium and 8% nickel. Prior to forming 300 series stainless is non-magnetic, however the forming process can induce SOME magnetism into the part.

Stainless steel is SUPERIOR to chrome plating because it won't crack or peel as it isn't a surface coating, but the very substance from which the fastener is made. However, because stainless steel is fairly soft (it only seems harder because it work-hardens in use) it TENDS TO GALL. ALWAYS use never-seize (anti-seize) or a similar product on the threads to prevent this.

These nuts and bolts are all slightly stronger than Grade 2 fasteners.
Regular strength stainless is great for most automotive applications, but use common sense! If you absolutely MUST have stainless, we have a line of Grade 8 strength stainless for high strength applications! Ask us! Unless you have a death wish, do NOT BOLT YOUR BRAKE OR SUSPENSION SYSTEM TOGETHER WITH REGULAR STRENGTH STAINLESS STEEL FASTENERS!.
