I had to buy new lug nuts to mount the wheels, Had to go to 3 different auto parts stores. All they had were "Metric" nuts, what is this world coming to. I finally found them at O'rileys Then of course they sell the lugs in 4 packs. That way if you only need 1 wheel you have to buy 2 packs. And have 3 lugs left. Well I needed all 20 lugs So I purchased 5 packs. I will order me up some locks later. It's Damn highway robbery I say.
Everything for our old vehicles has gone online.Not many auto parts stores carry SAE parts any more.I tried to buy an alternator for my 71 Skylark.I ended up switching to metric bolts to get an alternator.
