intake manifold bolts

i bought a Eldelbrock durashine intake manifold
I need some bolts that are chromed or at least match the manifold shine
I was on Eldelbrock web site and they don't offer any.
Would polish stainless work? or any suggesting where to get them

Thank you
Mark

Yes, but it is a good idea to use a hardened washer between the aluminum intake and the bolt head as this greatly reduces damage to the intake as the bolts are torqued up. Be sure to use a sealant on the bolt threads to stop any oil or coolant weepage. Plumber's Teflon paste type pipe thread sealant works well, it provides the right amount of lube in the threads so the torque readings match the booked values and it provides an excellent oil and coolant tight seal.

Be careful of a hardware store and do not ask the home depot guy, they may very well be friendly, but the usually do not know ----.

I say this because manifold bolts are a specific length and if you are a novice. I suggest you just buy a chrome or stainless bolt kit made for the appropriate application.

Also be very mindful of the elbo installation procedure. The are very exact as to using there gasket set and watch the torque spec. .. In other words, RTP "read the poop",

I recently picked up a nice looking chrome set from Spectre#46528. I used regular stainless hex heads from summit initially but they don't seem to sit quite right and are difficult to torque because of clearance ( I had to use a open end ). I have not switched yet but the Spectre bolts come with a nice wrench to get into those tight spots. Though I now have a Weiand manifold, I recall the same situation with the eddy I used to run. Check it out. I got mine at Autozone off the wall. Have fun!
