Hi all,

Can't believe I havent found this forum before.......dooohhhh!

Have been in the posession of a Pocher Testarossa for over twenty years and have only started to tackle it over the last three years......anyway.....

I am looking for some advice regarding Scale Bolts .... I calculate that the majority of the bolts on the engine are 10mm (at 1/8 thats approx. 1.25mm across flats). Can anybody point me in the direction of the nearest sizes that are being used and that look right! Maybe the ebst supplier that is being used by you 1/8 builders?

Thanks in advance for any help.....

Phil

Phil,
I looked at getting some scale hardware for this kit, but the amount and cost of bolts required in just the engine made me rethink a little. I ended up buying brass hex rod from Special Shapes that I plan to cut/file down to use in place of bolts. For $50 I got enough different sizes of hex bar stock, rods, and tubes to last a lifetime! Now if I can just get some time to work.gringrin
