Quality Classic Car Fasteners

Classic Car Fasteners

Whilst most classic car owners want value for money, they also look for quality. The trouble with classic car fasteners is that they all look the same. Although classic car fasteners appear generic the quality and durability of fasteners varies fairly dramatically.

All quality classic car bolts have a code or marking right on top of the head.  The code or markings let us know who manufactured and supplied our fasteners. It is important when supplying fasteners that there is traceability of supplier and manufacturer. All the classic car fasteners that we supply are fully traceable and are of industrial/commercial quality. The strength and durability of fasteners is vital in automotive applications.

We supply the majority of our classic car fasteners in the original packaging as supplied to us. We only source fasteners from businesses we know well and have had relationships with for many years. Many of our suppliers are based in the Midlands and we meet with them regularly and are able to review their quality controls and, where applicable, manufacturing methods.

The Importance Of Using New Classic Car Fasteners

Many classic car owners may not understand the importance of using new fasteners when maintaining and restoring their vehicles. Old fasteners can become weakened by age and over tightening. It makes sense from a safety perspective to replace fasteners, on a like for like basis, during restoration or maintenance. Replacement fasteners also look much better than restored fasteners. At Leyton Fasteners we recommend that you always replace nuts, bolts and washers every time you remove a part. Home restorers often fail to realise that when nuts and bolts are tightened, the threads are stretched, which will, over time weaken the fasteners. Also if you place a new washer against an old item, the locking component will be much poorer.
