Well, most of you guys know me. If you don't, my name is Al.

About a year ago I went on the hunt for real Titanium dress up nuts and bolts for under the hood of my car. After reading horror stories about both of the vendors who offer a similar product from south of the border and having a bad experience myself with one of them I decided to take things into my own hands.

I sourced out a distributor for Titanium hardware and ordered a test batch. After a bit of practice on the test batch I got the hang of the coloring process and I decided to do a large order. A few friends saw my work and asked me to do some for them too. Alas, a product was born. What I ended up with was a real Titanium fastener with an awesome burnt coloring finish:



The Process:

Each bolt, screw, nut, or washer goes through a time consuming five step (or more) process to get the coloring seen above. The coloring is actually an oxidizing of the surface of the metal. Because of this the finish is tough (like anodizing), but if it ever does get damaged, I can refinish it to like new condition. I've actually colored a couple bolts 5 times each to ensure the quality stays the same each time.

The Advantages: ;D
- Exclusivity. Titanium isn't cheap and these aren't for everybody. Put something under your hood that sets you apart from the crowd!
- Length & Size specific to your application. No one-size-fits all where you may end up with a screw that is too short or longer than factory.
- Tough, Vibrant Coloring. Each piece is hand finished, so no two are the same.
- Will not rust like cheaper "stainless", "polished", or "neo-chrome" fasteners.
- Finish will not chip of flake off like cheaper painted or neo-chrome fasteners.
- Available in a variety of sizes and lengths to fit your needs. No longer are you stuck with a supplier who only has one size!

The Disadvantage:  :unamused:
The ONLY disadvantage to Titanium hardware is the cost. Titanium is not cheap, however if you're looking to set your car apart from the crowd this is certainly one way to do it! This is the kind of modification is not for everyone, but it is the kind of mod that separates the Men and Women from the Boys and Girls.

The Specifics:  :banana:
I will be offering hardware in two ways:
1. Pre-Determined Kit - This will be a kit of hardware chosen specifically for the application listed.
2. DIY Kit - You tell me what sizes you need and in what quantities and I will put together a package.

If you have a more popular vehicle and I want to offer a kit for your vehicle but I do not have one listed yet, you will get a discount for being the first person to order one and for helping me determine the sizing for your application.

Feel free to post any question here!

You can reach me via PM, posting in this section, or email TiBurnt(at)gmail.com
I will be updating this section with in stock kits, pricing and pics shortly

Don't see what you're looking for? Post or send me a message with the sizes you're looking for and I'll but together a package for you!

Discounts offered for guys who have a car I'd like to offer a kit for and help me figure out sizing for their cars!

        I'd like to say wish granted, but I was working on a license plate kit before you mentioned it. It's been posted in the "Universal Hardware" page.
