Following recent discussion, I have sourced M7 bolts and nuts in a suitable range to make up Grab Kits.

I am just waiting on availability of the special serrated/convex washers, and star washers, which I would add into the kit described here.......

M7 X 1.0 bolts, 8.8 grade, hex head, fully threaded, yellow zinc plated. Nuts also yellow zinc. Nyloc nuts are silver zinc.

My proposal (may be adjusted depending on feedback) is:
A 12 compartment transparent plastic box, measuring 310x200x48.
Bolts:
25pcs x 16mm long
15pcs x 20mm long
10pcs x 25mm long
10pcs x 30mm long
5pcs x 35mm long
5pcs x 40mm long
5pcs x 50mm long
Nuts:
60pcs Standard
15pcs Nyloc

That would be 150pcs
$95- (as I'm a hobby business I don't collect GST)
Plus postage.

If I can get 7mm small (14mm) and large (18mm) serrated/convex washers like the originals..... I would add in say 30 large and 20 small. If I can get suitable quality star washers I'd add say 50 of them.
Price adjusted accordingly.
That would make a 250pc kit
That would use the 12 compartments in the box.
I don't have a total weight yet...

I would also have top up bags of each item. Possibly @$10- each bag.
Bolts 16mm x 15pcs
20mm x 15pcs
25mm x 12pcs
30mm x 12pcs
35mm x 10pcs
40mm x 10pcs
50mm x 8 pcs
Nuts Standard x 50pcs
Nuts Nyloc x 30pcs

Washers to be advised, hopefully soon!

Lead time currently 1 week.
When I start.... lead time would be about 2 days, depending when I get to town to post.
I would consider sending several kits together, for distribution between neighbours, to reduce freight cost.

Preliminary feedback welcome, please.

Real cars have hydraulics
Any suggestions on the relative quantities?
Should I consider some longer ones?

People will soon let you know. Longer bolts are quite rare unless they have a special function if you think about it (eg: regulator mounting bolts). It depends what people need for there specific restorations I guess. It's usually the smaller fasteners that are rusted/losts/damaged.

Sounds perfect for re-assembly time!
Many will need replacing, others missing to begin with.
Put me down for a pack too

5 x 0.8, 6 x 1.0 and 8 x 1.25 are available anywhere Shane.

Yes, 5 x 0.75 is a bit of a problem, but like you, I equipped myself with tap and die years ago, and have lots of donors cars waiting on the paddock.
Maybe a kit would be good..... I'll ask.

Bob, Great initiative.
I would like the washers as well if possible
Count me in for a set.

Ok, I'll go ahead with the first batch of kits as specified in the first post here.

Unfortunately the conical knurled washers are VERY rare in M7 in Aus.
I've put out a couple of OS enquires, but it could take a while.

So, I'm going ahead with the kits without washers. When I find a source of the washers I'll do top up bags to add into the kits.

The weight looks like being about 1.3kg.

It'll take a week to get it together.....
Standby.

Yer a good bloke Bob. I didn't believe half of what everyone else says about you! :)

Seriously, a great initiative, and thanks for going ahead with it. Anything that helps us Loonies keep those funny frogs on the road is a Good Thing.

Cheers, Pottsy.
