it really is a nice kit. I bought it a while back and was happy. I still haven't installed all of them yet but it really looks nice and even if your bay is not show quality they still are nice and aren't rusted like some of my old bolts were.

I'd say go with the ebay kit, you may pay more locally to peice it together yourself. But if not, it's still only a few more dollars to have everything all put together correctly, shipped to your door.

There are reasons why you wouldn't want other mateials. For example, aluminum bolts are only half (at best) as strong, much easier to break, round off and they are know to corrode and weld themselves in place.

Titanium is stronger but tends to be brittle and, of course costs 4 or more times what stainless costs.

Since both weigh about the same (about half the weight of stainless steel) and would save, at best 2 pounds, I'd suggest there are lots better places to put several hundred dollars.

I bought the bolt kit off Ebay. Actually, I missed the one I bid on and when I contacted the seller, he sold me another for the same bid. I am very pleased with the kit. Some of the bolts would be easy to find elsewhere but the bevelled washer/allen head flat head machine screw makes a very clean combination and is not available at the local hardware store.
