Metric bolts?

Where do I find a metric bolt to cover the hole where the mirror post was in?

Search for a stainless steel M10-1.25x16 bolt produced zero results so far...

I found a RAM mount to screw in on the left side, but the right side needs a bolt, it's holding the brake fluid reservoir.

Home Depo and Lowe's should have that size in their bolt bins. Its a pretty common size.

Tacoma Screw will definitely have them in any grade, material and finish you want.

Nope. The shortest they have is 20, it sticks out.

Nothing in their catalog:
Tacoma Screw Products, Inc.

I am as surprised as you probably are...

What you can do is buy a bolt with what ever thread you want and a nut with the same thread as the bolt. Thread the nut on to the bolt and then cut the bolt to your desired length. Then unscrew the nut and this will re align the thread on the cut bolt.

Or you can order the correct size online from one of those specialty fastener websites.

I'm completely against Tacoma Screw. I have given them multiple opportunities to help me out. I've gone to them every time I was looking for a one off or specialty bolt. I was let down every time I went in there, and to be honest, I was treated poorly. Fastenal and the local hardware store have been the best source.

I have seen people use plastic panel connectors from an auto parts store to plug them. It seems like a good solution.

Guess stainless steel bolt of this size doesn't exist... I'll check the Fastenal store, thanks!

The problem is, I need to bolt down the brake fluid reservoir.

You realize you can cut that 20mm to the length you need?

I never rely on what Tacoma Screws site says. I go into the store but I'm lucky enough to have one here in Bremerton.

There is also a place in Gig Harbor that is supposed to be good for odd ball stuff. Can't remember the name of it. It Mc-something I think.
