I have a wall of hardware collected from 20+ yrs in the hobby. The problem of soft metal is not new, kit/arf hardware has never been high quality.

Don't they supply Du-Bro hardware with their ARFs?

By the way, I took my car to rust-check and had it armour plated as well.

That should protect it from....
