Does anybody know the best size nuts and bolts to buy from Scale Hardware (scalehardware.com) to suspension on 1:24 scale cars?

Thanks,

Matt

Matt, here's a couple of pics of the sizes I have. In the first pic I've got them on the fuel tank of a 1/25 59' Cadillac for size reference. Starting on the left is Scale Hardware's 0.8 then the 1.0 then the 1.1mm. I don't know if you've used these before but if you haven't and you plan on it, do yourself a huge favor and buy the socket wrenches! Makes dealing with these tiny nuts and bolts a lot easier. Hope this helps........

Can you post some photos of the so called tiny hard ware nuts? I been trying to get an idea on how small they really are and on the web site of theirs there is really no help on that part. In stead of seeing a photo with all kinds of builts and nuts that is a edited photos, I would rather see one of the scale hard aware nuts like you did with the built's above. Any help would be great.

There was a WIP posted here about a big Bronco and I think the builder used teenie weenie nuts & bolts for his suspension. I'm not very good at searching posts, otherwise I would give you the link.

..ok...here's a couple of pics with the nuts and one with a pencil added. In the pics are the 1.1mm and the 1.0mm. Remember that Scale Hardware has two smaller sizes, the 0.5mm and the 0.8mm.................

I got an email from them too! This is GREAT news! One can't have too many nuts and bolts! :D

I hope they're around for a looooong time to come!

I'm using 0.5mm bolts right now in the building details for my Shelby engine (non threaded). I'll post pics in my WIP thread in time, but these aren't for everyone. A steady hand and certainly some patience is needed to place them where they belong.
