Go on Ebay. You can get assorted bags of stainless nuts and bolts on there for around a tenner. Always worth having them for emergencies or just to replace ones that are looking a bit ropey. Just make sure the ones you buy are similar to the ones you want to change....... Innit!

Rusty nuts and bolts

Hi,

First of all, you have to make an inventory of all those things that needed cleaning and repair. Thus, make a list of all the rusty bolts, nuts and screws. Be sure you don’t miss one so that after you are done with the cleaning process, you don’t have to go over it again because you miss some of them in your list.

Best Regards,
Sara Chang:smile

rusty bits

A2 or A4 stainless..dont bother replacing with ,ild steel untreated as you'll have the same issues..(used to work on Land Rovers).  Our 99 volvo v70 is immaculate underneath, and it we have to travel in the crappiest mud on our lanes in Lincolnshire during the winter months..but it a Proper volvo form sweden..not the crap they make now, or don't!

And leaves the said rusty bolts without a coating to corrode immediately.

Just buy some stainless items off Ebay. Job done.

Which is why

man invented grease :lol:

He wants to clean them, not replace them as he said. What steel bolts come with a coating anyway other than a dab of spray to stop them rusting in transit from the maker to the supplier? I have been making nuts and bolts since I was 17 and I'm now 41 so i guess I know what I'm talking about.:tongue:

Nuts & bolts

If any of those fasteners are torque tightened, they need to be original specification, they could shear if a weaker material or not be under torque if a stronger material.

Best route is as tabasco said, then nothing goes wrong.
