MGF subframe bolts 8 years 3 weeks ago #93057

As I intend to replace every single nut and bolt on both my F subframes I've been looking for a break down..

Anyone know of one?

If not is there any interest in me posting my breakdowns?

You are going to put photos and break downs of every nut and bolt you remove :-?

It's very handy to know, because instead of paying £8 per bolt, you can walk into a nut and bolt place and pay £3 for 5 of the same spec.

Would it not be better as a how to, rather than a thread :-?

I have been using Westfield fastners for stainless steel bolts and nuts, mind you i have used a lot of the ones that were "SCRAPPED" after the installation of the Tetra- pak machines. I used button head hexagon socket ones for the underbelly plate. No one wanted the spares (ss bolts and nuts) and my contractor was instructed to put them in a skip (by the barrow load :slapme: what a :slapme: waste)

Yes good point Jan it could do with being made a sticky so if someone wanted a particular bolt they could look down the list and find it
There are 'under bonnet' bolt kits on e bay. But there could be a market for 'subframe bolt kits' too?

I'm not going stainless as they can fracture on the bits that can be higly stressed so going 12.9 zinc plated and will copper grease all of them on the thread to make removal in the future easier
