I'm restoring a GMP Cobra and would like to run Spinblades with 4mm stainless steel bolts. The rotor head has been repainted with Klass Kote and I was hoping to not have ugly, rusted steel bolts.

Wudda ya think?

The lot I got is not a lot, but I thank God a lot for the lot I got!

Don't believe stainless steel bolts would be recommended for that application.....

Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....

See if you can find some K&S shinny 4 mm blade bolts - try Advantage - they are chromed steel. Or maybe nickel. Agree with Juan !

Definitely do not recommend stainless...

McMaster Carr has zinc plated grade 12.9...

Yeah, I was thinking a Cobra with asymmetrical Spinblades and an OS 45FSR would be minimal loading on 4mm stainless bolts.
The KSJ chromed bolts aren't easy to come by anymore. I have these on my 60 and 70 powered.
There are a few metric chromed online but finding a long-shanked 4mm hasn't been successful.

We use the ones from Mcmaster Carr, the threaded portion is too long, simply cut it down to the length you need.

The shank is long enough (for our blade grips) to reach the other side of the grip...

Hi Chris,
I may just do that! I'll see what else I can justify for an order from McMaster.
Any new colors in the G10?!
