Hydro dipped strut bar with custom bolts

Hey guys, this came out really nice. I bought a strut bar a couple months ago with the intentions of it getting hydro dipped in carbon fiber. I was going to send it to Ohio Speed to have it done, which they were going to send it to Florida to have it dipped. So I decided to skip the middle man and go straight to the source. I did some research and found a place about an hour way from my house. They guys were really cool, showed me around there shop, explained the whole process and were car guy too and take a lot of pride in there work. So happy I went this route. On top of that it was about a $100 dollars cheaper. I also was thinking about the bolts and washers that came with the strut bar and thought these bolts do not belong with this. I did some more research and founds these and man, they are awesome. They look great IMO.

Thanks! I found these online, I think they were $35. Well worth it. Those stock bolts would've stuck out like a sore thumb.

Nice bar. I painted mine and I have to fix it now bc the hood liner was rubbing it but the bolts are a nice touch.

Sorry, not sure how to post a link but I found these at a company called pro bolts do these are the black m8 x 1.25 x 35 mm. The washer is called a flared cone washer. I had a hard time finding 6 bolts and washers online. It was much easier just contacting these guys and telling them what you need. And yeah it wasn't $35, it was $46. The price you have to pay to look good.
