I didn't know that 14 mm heads were ever used on 8 mm bolts. (8.8 is 
the grade, not the size.)

The DIN standard is 13 mm, the JIS (Japanese Industry Standard) is 12 
mm.  The smaller head saves quite a bit of steel over a year's time.

Hiya Volks,
   Well in an effort to get back the 'stock look'  (relax dark siders - I'm
still pitch black under the paint!!!  Working on that 1776 screamer as I type)

porsche alloys without a home. . . interested? See them in the 'parts for
sale' section of the 'Type3 Classifieds'.
