Clods is going to look like a beast after you get done with all them wheels. You can get some 3mm bolts and nuts for your rod links to a smaller size without grinding them down. ACE Hardware has all kinds of stainless steel which I am using to convert all my old bolts and screws. I also ordered some online from http://www.boltdepot.com/ shipping a little high unless you get plenty of stuff. Hard to find 3mm lock nuts especially. I am using alot of socket cap allen head bolts to replace all my old ones.

Message from clodtalk admin:
Jim, aka 6x6_BigDollars, has eye problems, he can't see the screen very well.
He writes in caps so HE can see what he's typing, he's not mad/shouting.
In PM's, it's helpfull if you change your font-size to "huge".
