pre-drilled bolts

I was trying to find a site that I can get pre-drilled bolts for safety wiring. From my understanding, the most painstaking part about safety wiring is drilling the holes in the bolts. The advantages of pre-drilled bolts are obvious, now where can I get em?

Re: pre-drilled bolts

Where are you? (PROFILE!)

It's easiest to have a local shop do it all for you.

Re: pre-drilled bolts

WFO, my feelings are hurt! After all the CMP post you didn't remember I live in Columbia SC? I don't even have to look at your profile to know you live in Deleware,own an MV, and have fondly been called the "Charcoal Pit Guy". : I guess I can cancel that "who would miss me if i were gone?" post in DR2..... :

Re: pre-drilled bolts

If you don't find a shop buy a bunch of bits or a drill press and do it yourself : I am thinking a pre-drilled set would cost WAY too much.....

Further testing required 99999

Re: pre-drilled bolts

Doh! I'm sorry man! :

I had you confused with someone from New Jersey but I couldnt remember for sure. If you were from there I was going to recommend a shop here.

yes I DO remember the CMP posts! I just forgot you lived right there. You have to remember, I'm old and feeble minded. :

Re: pre-drilled bolts

WoW! I never thought I could access a site called "tastynuts" from work! : WFO, as old and feeble minded as you are, I'm proud to anounce that you could dust me on "MY" favorite twisty. Youth and energy is no match for experience and treachery! :

Re: pre-drilled bolts

Those bolts were about 7-10 dollars apiece so the price isn't that bad. I'd buy the oil drain bolt and....what else needs a bolt safety wired?

Re: pre-drilled bolts

Usually the brake caliper bolts also need to be safety wired along with the front axle torque bolts.

The brake banjo bolts normally are safety wired but you should be okay with just a blob of silicone.
