I spent a good amount of time this weekend with the wire brush + rotary tool cleaning corrosion off of my battery cables and a LOT of rust off of the bolts and nuts that connect the "big" terminals to the battery lugs. I spent more time, however, trying to track down some replacements for those square-head bolts in anything other than steel. Here are the bolts I'm talking about:
...which are used to connect these types of cable terminals:
I just wanted to replace the bolts with something that won't rust (brass, stainless, etc) but they seem extremely hard to find. I'm embarrassed at how many places I checked this weekend - Lowes, Home Depot, Autozone, Advance, and a hardware store that has NEVER not had a hard-to-find piece of hardware like this whenever I can't find it elsewhere. Also looked online at Napa, West Marine, and a few others.
Anyone have any ideas where to find these things in anything other than steel? I'm a bit fed up with them at this point!
