Default My DD is down

I've been swapping my car back to stock for an upcoming smog test. I've been waiting for this test so I haven't done much to the car. Other than electronics the only real mod is the headers. It should've been less than an hour to swap back to the factory manifold. Unfortunately, two of the studs on the bottom flange sheared off and I destroyed the nuts trying to get them off the broken studs. I've literally tried every auto parts shop in town plus a specialty store that, no ******* kidding, sells only fasteners and nobody has locking 10-1.5mm nuts. I just ordered a box 100 for <$10 but 2 day air is $23. I could have ordered less but shipping was the same so why not.

Anyway, just pissed off and thought I'd share. I didn't push a rod through the block, I'm missing two nuts. (<- Don't ******* laugh!) Seems like too many of my projects are death by a thousand cuts.

No Ace in town. There is a TrueValue, though. I didn't try them. I've been through this before in the previous town I lived in and didn't have a problem. Not here, though.

I ordered it at home during lunch. When I get home I'll PM the site. Fastenall or fastenit.com, something like that.
