You know what I hate?


I hate starting a job and not being able to finish it because I have to wait for a a nut, bolt, plastic clip, screw or washer to be delivered as a result of it breaking ,rusting


As a result, can anyone recommend a place other than Porsche where I can buy an assortment of nuts, bolts and screws etc which would save me from this?



I have seen Parts Link 24 but wondering if there are any other options

Best

Depending on what you need if it's just normal bolts washers etc ... I buy from a local engineering supplier ... provided they are correctly stamped for the material you are buying it's as good as anywhere

Wurth have a good selection of `bits boxes`, not the cheapest but good quality stuff. They do have boxes of trim clips some of which are manufacturer specific.

If it's something that's not specific to the car I order online and they get delivered a couple of days later but if you can find a local fastener place they will usually hold a huge amount of stock and can get them the same day.
