Stainless Hood Screw Kit

Hello, everyone, I made the trip to fastenal today and picked up some more of those jam-nuts and some stainless finish washers and allen screws...everything went very well, install took maybe 10 minutes, had to enlarge the two holes above the speedo but all the other holes were the right size.

I bought 25 10-24 Jam Nuts, 10-24 Stainless Flathead Allen-head screws, and I think #6 Finish washers...all in all it was $25 for all the fasteners, I think it took 14 or so of these fasteners to finish out the hood...I bought all they had because I plan on finishing out the bedsides as well...but here are a few pics of the screws installed...







I'm probably going to try out the rubber well-nuts on the push pins throughout the cab...I've not gotten around to seeing how that'll work in the long term. I've not tested this kit i've assembled on the trail yet...but I will be sure to keep you guys posted on the durability as far as the screws vibrating loose and what not...

Hope this helps

-Greg

well...i said i'd keep people posted on the durability of the fasteners...and heres a bit of an update...i've been on several short rides since i've swapped over to the stainless kit and i've pieced together many kits for friends i ride with...i've since ripped both side panels off of the teryx..well...just where the front hood meets the black side panels...the fasteners didnt come out, or didnt budge...the screw actually ripped the bottom of the hole out, but it bolted right back together and i've had no issues thus far...and now i can take the bedsides off in a few minutes to clean...i've not retro-fitted the 09 mudflaps into my bed yet..but i do plan on it...just keeping you guys updated...

Looks excellent.
Can you post a part or pic of the "jam nuts" so I can make sure we are talking about the same thing? Have a Fastenal down the road 25 miles or so and this will be happening. I can't stand those hokey nut things from the factory.

I also went to fastenal. I picked up pretty much the same thing. My allen screws have a rounded top is all. Say....on your idea of using fasteners throughout. I picked up what they call a cinch nut. You will put it on the inside most piece and go ahead and collapse it with one of your screws. It sandwiches both sides of the piece. Now you have a permanent nut on your plastic or whatever. You go ahead and put your other pieces on as they overlap and then finish with your stainless screw and finish washer. It's better than the wellnut although the wellnut does have its place.

I've tried the well nuts and such to replace the plastic pins...they work well, i'm just not 100% sure how well they will be able to be reused...the jam nuts work great where theres a metal backing, such as the bedsides...they worked well around the hood as well, but I'm always open to other ideas and improvements...

as far as finding the actual jam nuts you need to have a fastenal with one of the new automotive sections..

10-24 Zinc Grip Range: 1/64" - 3/16" Jack Nut | Product Details | Fastenal theres a link to the actual item I've got...you MIGHT have to drill the hole out a bit for the plastics...as far as the metal on the bed is concerned you will need a 3/8" drill bit...the parts on the tail lights get a bit tricky..but its quite simple..I used a small nail puller/pry bar to hold the jack nuts to keep them from turning...

hope this helps
