    Thanks kirrbby, I know that's a tall order. The worst case, I can always order 2 or 3 10 packs of 6 x 12 bolts from CHP and hopefully get 14 good ones and if I actually get 20 or 30 good ones then I could give the extra to whoever needs them. I don't have any of my 6 x 12 because I had the brilliant idea that if I bagged and labeled each different group of bolts by size and length that would help ensure that no bolts would be unaccounted for, well that didn't work. I'm guessing that bag must of somehow been misplaced at the plater. On a good note this bag of bolts were the only items that did not make the return trip from the plater. The 6 x 20 bolts I canned because they looked like crap even more so after plating.

    I'm sorry I don't have this done yet. But I did start picking thru bolts today. I'm confident that I have what you need, in nice shape. I'll try to have it all together tomorrow night.

    I re-plated my old ones after I wire wheeled them clean. You can get zinc plating kits relatively cheap. Re-plate and buff them out, they'll look great.

    Just received my hardware back from Parker Plating. All hardware that was sent accounted for. Very happy with the results. All of the bolts look like brand new.

    Yea, If you don't want to do it yourself, this company only does zinc plating and I think they did a really nice job. Be sure to clean hardware of all grease and grime before shipping. Any pitting on parts will not be hidden by zinc plating.
