Where did you get those whacky 14x1.5mm studs? A while ago I considered
replacing damn bolts with the studs, but the only source that I found was a
Fla based outfit called "Rally", who made a conversion kit. Studs in the kit
had 14x1.5mm thread on one end and 1/2'-20 thread on the other. That was
really dumb, I've sent them back.
Call me a stubborn, metric-indoctrinated European, but I refuse to deal with
anything non-metric either on my cars or in the everyday life.

If you could hint me on where can I get the studs, Graydon, I'd appreciate it
very much!
