    Default Irmscher Grille Nut size.

    Well I bought an Irmscher grille off a member from veccy C. But didn't include nuts. Just wondering what the nut size is for this grille? The Aussie stock AND opel grilles only need screws from the inside of the bonnet to the grille. However the irmy grille I bought has screws IN the grille that need to be nutted to stay secure on the bonnet.

    Hopefully you understand what I mean...

    IIRC, they are 6mm (10mm spanner size) and dont use nylocs, use normal nuts with flat and spring washers. If you use nylocs, you may shear the studs off when the nyloc bit starts to bite on the thread.

    Ultimately... I'm asking how I get this grille to fit my car. Nut size / Washer size / anything else needed. I honestly have no idea.

    Cheers guys. MUCH appreciated. I'll search for them on Monday. As due to perth being so behind the times we have no Sunday trading... Except for bottle shops and general hardware stores. Unfortunately for me I work at a bottle shop all day.
