door screws or bolts??

I took the doors of my 52 buick but I stripped the bolts that look like big machine screws The head is a phillips screwdriver pattern. I can't find replacments so I'm looking for something with an allen head design but no luck. Any ideas??

The Allen head bolts are quite common....any industrial supplier can get them.

door screw or bolt

I know that the allen head bolts are common but any place I go I can't get the right size. The heads too big and the threads too small or vise a versa. What is this fastenall. Is it a store? If so where are they located?.

You may have to rethread the tapping plates and recountersink the hinges to fit the bolts that you are able to get.

Hey Darkside; Fastenal
U9-10, 94 Dunkirk Rd.
St. Catherines
984-6965
Take a sample in. Should chase the threads on the post. If that doesnt work let me know how many you need. I know where there is a 52. Was supposed to go pick it up but just havn't had time. It's pretty rough but I might be able to salvage the hinge bolts. Cheers!!!

Those phillips headed hinge screws are a real PITA, the last one I worked on with them was a 66 chevy II, what a design flaw IMO. Good luck with it-I hope you get some good allen head style ones to replace them. Torx is another option.

Ya. They made a big mistake when they put those in. I'm leaning towards retaping the plates and going with a bigger thread and a allen head. Either way it aint going to be fun. thax.
