Plated 12.9 bolts
 
Does anyone know a source of either socket head, torx head or triple square bolt that you can purchase with plating. All I seam to be able to buy is black oxide finish which is not recommended for exterior use. I now have 12 black oxide 12mm socket head screws holding my CV's to the Differential. I had to get longer ones due to the addition of wheel speed sensors so I couldn't purchase genuine MB bolts. I had the car on the road for only 1 month and they already have a coat of rust on them.

Have you tried ARP? Maybe a little pricey for your tastes however. You could also send your hardware to a professional to get plated. That's not too expensive.

I deal with them all the time but I never thought to check there they have 12,9 socket heads in zinc plating. I would have prefered cad but zinc is better than nothing.

Thanks
