Brief Description:  new landing gear hardware

Thanks to Pete Britton-fellow builder, for the name of this company and the harware info.
I ordered the bolts because i think they are just one size longer and that will compensate for the higher nut used. The nuts are a bit stronger according to some tests Ive seen but a selling point for me was the 12 point profile which will hopefully ,make it easier to get to inside the tower when torqueing. The bag of washers are specific to the nut type and are slightly smaller in outside diameter and are a better fit in the gear weldment. This company only sells the washers in groups of 100 and was 10 dollars but you can find them elsewhere for less but wont be able to get the other hardware or if you can, its expensive. So I just used these guys and spent around 50 bucks or so.
Anyway...I guess Ill be trying to mount the gear this weekend or early in the wek
