I am in the process of doing a full restoration with my 280Z, and need help deciding on fasteners. I bought the stainless steel bolt kit from Zcardepot, but I am not sure this is the route to go. Anyone used the stainless bolts? Any issues with the kit? I am on the fence with just going with zinc hardware due to the added strength.

 

Any thoughts?

I wouldn't use the SS bolts as crucial fasteners where proper torquing and strength is needed but most of the body bolts would be fine I would think.

Zinc plated bolts.

A car is a hole in the air, suspended there by four rubber doughnuts which you can not eat.
Into this hole, you throw money, which you will never see again.
