Holy Moly. Is that your garage? Granite countertops?

Did you do the galvinizing, or had it done? Looks nice. Is that chrome plating?

It´s our kitchen (my wife loves me for that...).

I have a shop in town doing it for me, but you have to prepare the stuff.
Each part was brushed by me with a drilling machine - that took a lot of hours.
The plating is zinc with blue or yellow chromate, also used by Jeep on some but not all screws. Most were bare metal.

I am in awe...

I cleaned all bolts on a drill press with a wire brush and then painted them. never thought of galvanizing...

Great to see!

Why would there be an issue? Does the treatment change the spec that much?

No problem at all. Did several cars in the past like that and it works.
But important is to remove rust and dirt before galvanizing as mentioned.
That's all.

Wouldn't it have been easier to just replace fasteners with stainless steel? That's what I do with everything except head bolts.

Just for giggles

Would you mind telling us about how much that cost?

Inquiring minds want to know...

Wow. That looks awesome. I guess we are just slackers, Brad.

steamship, we need to some some pics of the project. With that much done already, there has to be plenty of progress pictures somewhere.

If you can find someone locally in the US to do it. I looked in my area and couldn't find anyone. West coasters seem to have some better resources.

Depends on the quality of the stainless and cost of the coating. I've heard of it costing in the range of $200.00 if you can find someone to do it. Not a bad price for all of that. As you can see, he had a bunch of small pieces refinished as well.

The OP may not have been able to easily source "standard" size fasteners in Europe. <shrug>

Also, these bolts are truly OEM, not replacements.

I wonder about the strength of stainless versus the various grades of mild steel bolts. I've personally seen stainless header bolts on a buddy's engine that would strip and twist if you turned them too tight. I don't recall seeing any stainless bolts in grade 5 or 8, but then again, I never specifically looked. Maybe that is why stainless bolt kits are only for dress-up parts?
