M7 x 45mm cap head sources

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of anywhere I can get the m7 x 45mm cap head bolts that hold the rear hub to the aluminium upright.  There is no corresponding part number at SJ.  I can get stainless but would prefer standard as to avoid ruining the aluminium in the need of drilling them out ( I had to drill one out this time)

Sorry, didn't notice that you could get stainless..!

Will have a look for some zinc plated steel or similar...

50mm below, cut them down. Bit pricey but they look quite rare!

I knew I had ordered those from SJ a while ago, but it did take me some searching. The part number changed to B082D4106F, stil available: https://www.sjsportscars.com/parts-and-accessories.htm#searchresults

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

Those black phosphate coated bolts ones are terrible for rusting. They are not meant for exposed locations, I would rather re-use the original ones.
