Rusty Nuts

Hi Y'all
Anyone know where I can buy wheelnuts / bolts at a sensible price for my '02 156 sw the old ones are getting rusty and look bad , also I've lost the small circular cover which pushes into the sill under rear door , drove thru a flooded road and it got washed away

Thanks chaps

Re: Rusty Nuts

Just slap some smooth silver hammerite on them and they'll look absolutely fine.

Re: Rusty Nuts

I took mine off and Zinc plated them .

They look spot on and will outlast any painted finish

Re: Rusty Nuts

Look in the boot for a small orange box. If your car has Alfa locking nuts fitted, you may have 4x spare wheel bolts in the box the locking nuts came in if you are lucky. I know its not even enough for a whole wheel, but if only few bolts are affected, then it may be enough.
