Learned that the hard way! Make my own now, just grind a small flat on the bolt shank, cross drill a small hole in the center and drill a hole in the head of the bolt to the center cross drilled hole and thread it for a fitting.

Ok OC This will be at the top o my list. But not something I can do right away. So for now, scuff with sand paper,spray off with break clean,lithium grease at bolt, Then maybe a shot of blk paint,at old bolt holes ?

I used tap in grease zerks so I didn't have to tap holes.
Whatever size drill that was required for tap in zerks I used to cross drill bolts.
I connected cross drill and side drill but not all the way through.
Maybe 8 minutes per bolt till I got it down pat then a couple minutes to drill and hammer in zerk.

Mine were grade 5.
Correct I Drilled from bolt head end.
By the way I used the original bolts as there was nothing wrong with them.
