Well the stripping is more or less done and it is time to start putting things back together. Of course, there were some casualties during the stripping and I need to get hold of new nuts'n'bolts for assembly. The ones that I am looking for are those to attach the guards to the body, etc.
Does anyone know of anywhere that I can get nuts'n'bolts for automotive applications? I can recall seeing kits online, but I don't think they were for what I want/need.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Not sure I can help, but I'd really like to know myself. I've seen new bolts on ebay for various parts of the 240z but I'd like a kit for the whole car.
Costa once told me he can get an entire kit for a 240z with every nut and bolt for something around $50 I'd imagine someone would have a record of what bolt sizes and strengths somewhere.
It might be worth calling somewhere like Zshop and Zworx and asking them if they know where you can get such a kit?
I think this is a good topic to keep open I know that when I stripped my 73 the wing bolts your referring to either broke or rounded.

However, be careful if the head of the bolt needs to be a certain size (b/c Australian standards have changed in the last 30 years and in one case I could not buy new HT bolts with a head small enough b/c they couldn't be legally produced.
In that case, i got them from a wrecker and Zworx. But it is best to get the new ones from.
Hope this is some help.

I did find a few bolt kits in the states, but none that covered what I am looking for. Check out http://www.courtesyp...-creations.html for the kits that I found.
Once I find what I'm looking for, I'll pass on the info.
