Default Suspension bolt group buy

I had started another thread for this yesterday in the hope that it would be migrated across but appears it hasn't. So I will start another one

I have taken over the group buy as Ronnie/Bonzo has chosen to take a break from the forum.

The kits will contain exactly what they did when Ronnie was running the group buy:

2 x M12 X 260mm Bolts (Rear Uprights)
2 x M12 X 200mm Bolts (Diff Mounts)
20x xM12 X 75mm Bolts (Wishbones, Rear Camber Adjuster, Lower Shock Mounts)
6 x M12 X 60MM Bolts (Upper Rear and Front Shock Mounts)
30 x M12 Nyloc nuts (Type P - these are a bit thicker than normal nuts and better suited to suspension applications)
30 x M12 Plain full nuts (these are for test fitting components without ruining the Nyloc nuts)
60 x M12 Flat washers (Form A)
60 x M12 Black plastic nut covers.

All bolts are 8.8 high tensile and bright zinc plated. All the nuts and washers are bright zinc plated too.

I have emailed the same supplier Ronnie used but I am still awaiting a reply.

I went to see a place local to me today who deals in nuts and bolts. They can do everything apart from the M12x260mm and the nut covers. The price they gave me works out at 11.10 per set if I order 10 sets or 10.91 if I order 15 sets. As it stands, combining the list from Ronnies thread with the sets Saturn Sports Cars would like, 15 sets is what I will be ordering.

I am still trying to source the longer bolts and the nut covers although I know I can get them from the place Ronnie got them. I'll get a price for just the long bolts and covers as well as the complete set from them too. If it works out cheaper to combine the sets from two suppliers I will do that.

I still need to sort out postage costs too.

1) John Marchant (confirmed)
2) eSteve (confirmed - payment received)
3) TQ uk (confirmed - payment received)
4) wgroove (confirmed - payment received)
5) roadster v8 (confirmed - payment received)
6) mr-p (confirmed)
7) DStanley1809 (confirmed)
8) dan g8 (confirmed - payment received)
9) Headshot (confirmed - payment received)
10) Ssssnake (confirmed - payment received)
11) Saturn Sports Cars (spud69) x 6 sets (confirmed - payment received)
12) Homersdouble (confirmed - payment received)
13) Malcolm (confirmed - payment received)
14) Airhead (confirmed)
15) Eternal (confirmed - payment received)

If everybody above could let me know if they still want some or not I will update the list. If anyone else wants some I'm sure it will bring the price down even more

I'll be leaving it open until at least the end of the month, sorry about the long wait. I don't have the money at the moment to put the order in and it will give as many people as possible the chance to get in on the deal and bring the price down further.

Thanks David, i did post earlier but now we are back to normality the post has gone. But yes please put Saturn down for 5 sets, there are a lot of builders out there that do not use the forum so will be good to be able to offer this good deal to them to.

Regards.....AndyH
