    Stainless steel nuts and bolts

    I can't remember who I was speaking to at PV regarding stainless steel nuts and bolts for fixing the endplates of a strut brace to the wings (apologies). Or any other bolt for that matter

    So for that person and anyone who's interested, here be the link...

    Be warned, most stainless bolts do not have the same "strength" as mild or High Tensile bolts so don't go using them on any high stress suspension parts etc. Unless you go bigger etc.
