Description

The design provided fits an M6 bolt but it could easily be resized to fit any bolt.

It covers the bolt head to use as a grip for tightening bolts that sometimes need to be removed.

This was created as a replacement to hold on the light grills on a Land Rover Defender where the original M5 nuts had pulled through and been replaced with M6 nuts.

Materials and methods

# Bill of Materials
M6 Bolt
Adhesive. I used two part epoxy.

Clean up, glue the bolt in, glue the end cover over the bolt. Let it cure and job done.
