Hardware for attaching stuff to the frame

PostPost by: 2mAn » Mon Sep 26, 2022 7:51 pm

Where would someone look to find the correct hardware to attach pieces to the frame? I have the manual at home and could look there, but Im curious what the proper hardware is for attaching things like body to frame, suspension arms to frame, etc

Thanks

You can decode them from the part number listed in the parts books. Most of the standard HW part number are just encodings of the type/size.

See "STANDARD HARDWARE PART NUMBER CODING" at:
http://rdent.com/manuals/plus2/introduc ... uction.htm

I even did a google sheet decoder for them.

Part books are also available online at: http://rdent.com/manuals/manual_index.htm
