    i have only been out twice so far, not much to report just yet, as they seem to be holding.dont know how well they will ware though.i have had some damage in the past with the eclips coming off and the pins sliding out causing a broken arm and shock,so i dont mind ware and tair on the bolt as long as it prevents the same thing happening again (which i hope it does) but so far so good.

    i get all my nuts , bolts and stuff from here = http://www.grfasteners.com/
    they have a unit with a trade counter , on the same industrial area that i work in, so i just take a walk there at break time,
    as cookie wrote there are plenty of companies around that will supply what you need
    the sizes i have used are in the picture on the paper
    i will update pics with measurements as i cut the others to there useable lenths .
    hope this is helpful to you all

    front top arm and front lower, had to add 2x1mm shims to the front side of the lower, the bolt needs another 2mm of thread cut , ( job for another day, shims will do for now,
