Does anyone have or know where I can get a few strut bolt/nut caps ? These are for dress up and are polished or chrome. I've lost a couple and would like replacements. They are held on with orings for anyone who's been a member for awhile and remembers.

For the strut cap, or for the (2) bolts that secure the strut tower brace?

No, one of the billet companies.

There are any number of hardware vendors out there that can supply you with anything you can think of including plated even black chrome. A word of caution; most acorns are not deep enough to torque properly w/o grinding the studs a bit and most caped nuts like that tend to be a little soft. Therefore I use grade 8 flange nuts to do the work and file them down so the 2 will clock, doesn't look like a nut on a nut. The only thing I've really had to hunt for was nuts with the same width across the flats.

Thank you for your reply. These go over the bolt / nut and are held on with orings.I have an Hendricks Engineering aftermarket strut brace so there's eight bolt/nuts not four.

You mean strut tower brace caps.

Those haven’t been produced in nearly a decade (Billet Prototypes and Billet Technologies). Best bet now is to post a WTB post in the numerous Facebook groups to see if anyone has some they’d be willing to sell.

Yes those, I figured they would be nonexistent but though I'd give it a shot. Thanks

I wish I could get ahold of Jamesbiz, maybe he might have some left over. I think Maverickman just has the covers.

James sold all of his remaining inventory to someone a long time ago and that person slowly sold the remaining parts off.
