Picking The Correct Bolt Grade And Thread Pitch For Your Build

Pat Topolinski, co-host of Engine Power, shares how to make sure you have the correct bolt grade and thread pitch when workin gon your build. This is a factor that’s sometimes overlooked but is very important – as if it’s done wrong it can be dangerous or even deadly.

Check out this beautifully restored 1963 Chevy C10 as Katie’s featured ride. She’ll be joined by one of the builders on the project, Nick Roberts from Nichols Paint & Fab in Watseka, Illinois. Owners Todd and Maddie Zientec handed the team a decent in shape truck and in a year long build this is what they did. Everything has been handmade from the inner fenders to that unique front end that held four headlights and now has just two with Harley Day Markers. It’s got a 5.3 liter making about 400 horsepower. The bed is done in Oak with help from a local high school shop class. Inside it’s a two-tone look with a gorgeous pinstripe that circles the headliner. One handsome pickup! Plus Marc Christ drops by to talk about the Power Stop Ultimate Mustang he and Tommy are creating with drift champion Vaughn Gittin, Jr. And this is a pony car you can enter to win. It’s a full block so make sure you join us. For more on the truck visit www.nicholspaintandfab.com
