Hi, I was just looking through a parts mag when I saw some body and chassis bolt kits. They're very pricey for a bunch of nuts and bolts but that is outweighed by how poor of a job I did marking them when I stripped the car. I know that I have a lot of marked bolts but there are so many that I dont have a clue about. I wonder how many others are out that have been in this boat. Is there any other way to go about this? Has anyone tried the bolt kits in the parts books? Do they explain what every bolt is for?
Thanks a lot.

It must be maddening looking for the right bolt when you don't know what it looks like.
You should try to find somebody close by with a similar car and use it as a model. I do all
the time. Maybe somebody on this forum lives 2 blocks away.

Hi Matt,
What is your cost for one of these Master Kits? This could save me some time and aggravation in the future.
Thanks,
Bob

I have purchased the master kits, and although it seems like a lot of money for nuts and bolts, I think it
is worth it. every nut and bolt is categorized and separated by location on the car. for instance, working
on the hood? find the bag that says hood hinges, or the bag that says latch assy.

A.M.K also has an illustrated catalog that I purchased that shows specs and info for each fastener that
I found useful for identifying hardware that I reused.
