5-16"-18 Self-Tapping Ridge & Serrated Flange Head Bolts: $2 Each <-- Click for More Pictures
I am selling original 1963/64 Cadillac 5/16"-18 Ridge head, & Serrated Flange Head bolts, with Self-Tapping threads with New Cadmium Plating for $2 each. Almost all are 3/4" although I have a few at 1" and a couple at 7/8".
This is one of my last large batches of bolts with new Cadmium plating for now so get them before they are all gone!
Bolts are measured by diameter, thread pitch, length (bottom of head to tip), and type head, and hardness (standard, Grade 5, Grade 8, etc.) The bolts in this set have the serrated flange head which doesn't require a lock washer, and the raised ridge head bolts. All of these have the self-tapping tapered thread. These are used on various places on the cadillacs, often on fender and body brackets.
The bolt measuring tool seen at end of photos is extremely helpful for spec'ing a bolt and only costs a couple bucks at most hardware stores.

A NOTE ABOUT CADMIUM PLATING: Cadmium is a whitish-silver color that is applied with an electroplating process. The gold shown in the photos is the result of a gold or yellow chromate conversion. In the 50s, chromate solutions became available so that metals treated could be clear, yellow, gold, and olive. Many found the yellow and gold with their iridescent red, green and blue coloration attractive. Many platers call this Yellow-Gold Rainbow Plating or simply "Rainbow Plating". The finish is more commonly referred to as gold cadmium plated or yellow cadmium plated. You can add a chromate conversion to any plated metal or unplated metal. The chromate conversion increases the protection provided by cadmium plating.
All of my larger items have been “rack plated”, while the smaller fasteners are “barrel plated”, both with the cadmium plating base with the gold chromate conversion. To be clear, this IS Cadmium plating and IS NOT Zinc plating. I have had questions about whether or not this plating will affect bolt and nut thread size. For all practical purposes the answer is no. The old cadmium or other based plating is stripped from the old fasteners, then the new plating is applied resulting in basically the same size thread. It is of course always a good idea to chase newly plated threads with a tap & die before installing and torqueing.
Down to 2 of the 63 upper hood latch assemblies with the new gold cadmium plating. It could be a long time before I have something like this again. Email me at email@example.com
