Hey guys (and girls), been a long time since I last posted in here, but I'm finally back into the Dub world. Some of you might remember a little "incident" with the head on my G60 and the car really hasn't changed much since then. I finally picked up a Mk2 Jetta so that's my daily now (better than my tC) and damn does it feel good to be back in some kind of VW.
So aside from the small talk, I've got some new plans for my car, and one of them is to replace every nut and bolt on the car, firewall forward. Now Obviously I could take them and go to a hardware store and just buy the correct sizes, but does anybody know of some sort of list that has all the nut/bolt sizes and what they are for? I think it would just be a bit easier to have a list to match up to versus a bunch of bolts. Any advice/input is appreciated.
And just to be a bitch

Paint and body work within the next month

Yea your not kiddin, I've gotta get up in 2 1/2 hours for school and then I've got a fun filled day of workin on cars.
I doubt my bentley would have anything like that. I'm sure i could sift through the pages and make my own list...but that would suck

I've done pretty much the same on mine, but gradually. Every time I've removed something I bought new bolts from the dealer. They're actually very cheap for most of them so it's really not worth replacing them with generic bits. Most of them are special shapes or lengths that you can't get generic anyway.
Nice colour by the way

one thing to remember is that you need to make sure you get the right grade in bolt . cannt just use something with the same size and thread.

Yup, which is why I was hoping to find a nice little list. Seeing as how a lot of the older rusted bolts no longer have the grade numbers stamped in the top of them
