    Option 1:

    cable ties

    Option 2:

    a place like southern fasteners..... take the bolts your missing they will tell you what they are (prob metric fine) and then you buy them.

    head down to pick-a-part and grab lots of bolts off the same parts on similar cars.
    ie. if you need nissan bolts, maybe grab some off a gazelle CA20? or similar.

    this means you usually get the right size, length and thread bolts/nuts.

    thats what i would do

    contact the seller first of all and ask him for them.

    if not, your friendly jap importer should be able to hook you up with the caliper and s13 conversion bolts.

    as for gearbox, if you can get one off a mate or someone here and go to your local fastener company and get copies!!! They are called coventrys/sweetmans in WA

    Toyota bolts:
    M6x1
    M8x1.25
    M10x1.25
    M12x1.25

    Wheel nuts:
    M12x1.5

    Seat belts:
    a special thread, not metric


    You can buy hi-ten metric bolts in packets from SuperCheap and places like that. Any place with a Champion bolt display. But it's not cheap. And often a M8 bolt with a 12mm head, will end up having a 13mm head when you buy it localy.

    Agree with Sprinter86.

    1 - Go to Pick-a-part.
    2 - Pillage bolts from everything within sight (ok, keep it to toyota/jap stuff so you know it's metric)
    3 - ???
    4 - Profit
