Replacing nuts and bolts 9 Months, 3 Weeks ago Karma: 2
Hi Lads,

So after a two year delay I’m finally getting down to working on the MR2. I’m looking at replacing the nuts bolts and washers to something more resistant to corrosion.

I have been reading a couple of articles online about it and many seem to be conflicting. Some recommend stainless and others recommend zinc plated. Has anyone on here got any experience/advice they would like to share?

I will upload pics soon of the progress to date!

I changed all my under tray bolts to stainless and used zinc washers with each of these.

the stainless bolts are like the day they went in, however the zinc washers are caked in rust so take from that what you will

What nuts and bolts are you looking to change?

I went stainless with copper grease just for good measure.

Hi eringobragh,

I’m talking every nut bolt screw and washer on the car. I’m doing a complete rebuild but I want it to last long after I finish it. I know that I will need to get the same or better rated nuts and bolts for each part. I’m just curious as to others experiences as I have seen a few people saw that stainless won’t suit all applications.
