Guys and girls,
How many of you have been very frustrated by those stupid wheel
bolts on the Audi? I hate 'em. My RX7s all had 'em too. I changed them
to studs. They were only M12x1.5, and readily available.
Well, I started calling around to get studs for my '86 5KCSTQ,
and found out that noone has M14x1.5 - 40mm long studs! I finally found
a company that specializes in small run custom fasteners, so I may have
some made up. If I do this, it will prolly get cheaper to do a bigger
batch of them. Is anyone out there interested in switching over to studs?
If so, let me know, so I can estimate the numbers that I can plan
for. If there are a few of you, then I'll look into having them make up
a hundred or so. I estimate the cost at about $50.00/car assuming
20 studs per car.
