Default Front Splitter Fitting Kit

Hi All,

Looking recommendations on fittings for front plastic abs splitter.

Ive lost/sheered a lot of the self tapping retaining screws due to vast number of potholes and restricted access points (scraping on the ground).Was going to just use a few nuts and bolts but would prefer something less sturdy to allow the flwx so that it doest get cracked/split.

Good quality stainless bolts, nuts and large penny washers along with some Loctite threadlock. I always fit mine with this combo now and never have any issues.

Decent one will also have threadlock

Or buy stainless Nyloc nuts.

To be honest you can buy suitable stainless bolts, nuts & washers along with threadlock from Screwfix easily enough these days. Simples.

Something like an M6 x 20mm long hex head screw in A2 stainless would be fine.

Fitted my last splitter with M8 which was massive overkill, but still worked a treat. It all works.
