Stainless Rear Diff Cover bolts

I'm looking for some stainless(or maybe chrome I guess) rear diff cover bolts. ARP has kits for 10 bolt axles and 12 bolt axles, but I have a 14 bolt. I guess I could buy 2 10 bolt kits and have 6 spare diff cover bolts, but thats a waste. So anyone here know where I could get some stainless diff cover bolts for a 14bSF? Thanks.

Just go to the bolt store and buy some stainless flange bolts... Probably less than $5.

I just picked up some goldish colored grade 8 bolts at my hardware store. There were 34 cent a piece. I believe they were M-8 1.25

Re: Stainless Rear Diff Cover bolts

Don't bother with stainless. The threads don't have enough gonads. I've stripped out several of them in my 10 bolts. I bought like 4 kits off eBay, gave a set to my Dad and kept the rest for myself. I've been slowly replacing them with rusty factory ones as they strip.
