    Dang, George. That looks as rough as your first night in jail.

    G&W has provided a pretty good assortment of "German" bolt/nuts with correct head stampings when I needed them. It's not somehthing that Weldon is going to go out of his way to do so I'd leave it alone unless you are planning on paying by the pound which one of his customers does do.
    These actually bring very good money with names like Kamax, NSF, Verbus, Ribe as well as some others.

    I try to use original hardware on bike restorations but folks want stainless steel for a number reasons. It holds up better if the bike is ridden and exposed to the elements and it also give the owner something to do if he/she are inclined to polish the head and remove markings. It' also "pretty". FWIW.

    Good luck,

    We used an asortment from Wurth and replated in cad some original hardware when we did the 68 Rallye. Stoddard sells some hardware assortments but they are more wrong than right.

    FWIW, I washed "Nina's" bottom today...among other bits and pieces, I remove the horns when I do this. All the 13mm wrench sized bolt heads read KARRO...then tiny little markings below...I think maybe "8" "8" The bolts are that funny goldish plating color. Why do I do this? Certainly NOT for a concours. I just like having a clean street ride. Hope this info helps, but keep in mind these are bolts from a mere 1972 911S...and things may be diffferent with '73 RS's. I mean, down to bolt head markings, are we?

    The "goldish" colour can be replicated by "coloured passivated zinc coating". The original may have been cadmium, but that is all but illegal these days
