Hi all I was looking at fitting a strut brace. Does anyone know what diameter, length and grade of bolt to use? I got access to bolts so it's just what to get. Smile

    Do you not have a Screwfix or the likes near you? Even Wilkinson's sell small bags of bolts. B&Q and Wicks will do the same.

    I actually fitted them at the beginning of 2011, so yes they did get road use for around 6 months last year...Razz

    However, for the last 12 months they haven't left the garage I'll give you that. LOL
