Hiya folks!
I was wondering if anyone knows where I can find a good source for odd sized metric bolts. I had to cut two of the bolts off that retain the rear brake discs on my gtv6 (frozen, head stripped, etc.). They are 15 mm head size, m10, 1.00 thread and 33mm shank length. The m10 plus the fine 1.00 thread already makes these a little rare, but the reduced head size makes them virtually nonexistant. Everbody has the right size, but with 17 mm heads. That ain't happinin' there's no room!!I've looked on the web, at wurth, and whatever other places popped up. I've a mind to call a japanese car dealership, 'cause japanese cars use stuff like this at times. I'm not keen on buying a box of a thousand, cause that is how some of these places sell bolts (bulk). Thanks for any help.

Have you tried McMaster Carr? They have a large assortment of strange stuff.
www.mcmastercarr.com

They are a great and inexpensive source of all sorts of hardware stuff.
We use them all the time and the service is great.

Thanks marcus.
I'll check them out. I'm considering grinding the heads down from 17mm to something that will fit if I can't find them!:(
