these wont take as long as the Projectors and Quaife LSD's will they? :)

H&R has confirmed availability of 5, 15, 20, and 25MM spacers. If you are ready to place your order, feel free to PM me at anytime so we can get the ball rolling on your particular order.

Hey, just to let everyone know, I am going to look into getting my bolts stripped and nickel or chrome plated. If anyone else would be interested you could have Joseph ship your bolts to me and you pay me for the plating + shipping back to you.

I have no clue what it could cost, but it would be relatively cheap and to do 200 pieces would only benefit everyone vs me doing my 20. I will charge you whatever it costs me. Will probably be in the neighborhood of $0.40-$0.75 each. Please do NOT post or PM me and ask what it would cost. I have no clue at this point and if you ask I will just cut and paste this paragraph.

Keep in mind that plating is only as good as the metal's finish itself. So if you want mirror finish polished triple chrome bling look, and the bolts end up coming from H&R with a standard ugly jerk rough industrial finish, the plating will just be a shiny standard ugly jerk rough industrial finish. The only way around that is to sand and mirror polish each bolt head face before being plated. That is no problem, but it will be extra time and $ for the labor.

Nickel plated will have the most corrosion resistance. I can also do black hard chrome though, which is sweet. It's NOT the "black chrome" like you see on some optional badges on cars or cabinet hardware. That is decorative only and is not really chrome. It's zinc plating with black dye in it and is plated on a polished part to give it a smoke mirror chrome plated look. It provides no corrosion protection at all. Black hard chrome is NOT that. Black hard chrome is designed as a corrosion plating and looks like semi gloss black paint and is hard as a rock - you will not see any shiny metal underneath. It is NOT cheapass black oxide either. If you want a stealth look, black chrome is killer.

Also, there is a $100 minimum with my plater, so if 4 people want nickel and 1 person wants black hard chrome , the person that wants black hard chrome is SOL unless he either wants to foot the $100 minimum or settle for nickel like everyone else.

9/28 - Update on head sizes for lugs. I called H&R yesterday, 9/27, and the 3 people I asked if the bolts for the 20MM spacers are available in 17MM and all 3 said, "it is only available in the size available". <_< However, not one would tell me what size that was. I was fortunate to finally speak with one gentleman who will be giving me a call back today (9/28) with more information on the matter. It appears as though they have certain, preset head sizes for various bolt lengths.

What is the largest size you can use for the front and rear without having to roll the fenders or cause any problems ?? I am using Comets with 225/45/17 if that helps. Thanks for any info. God Bless :)

I have 20mm on the rear and they work great on the c70. i even had them on the front for a while as well. it might even be better if you put the 25mm on the rear as it will appear to fit just right

i'm pretty sure the bolts on the 20mm are the same as stock width (19mm right?) and longer

in any case the spacers are a nice touch
