No problem!!! I am glad you are asking. Here is what we are doing:

All of the bolts we are replacing are plated. Some are 1/2" 5-piece, some are 3/8" wedge. We are using all stainless steel glue-in bolts for replacement, 4" long with 304 and 316 grade steel. Hilti RE500 and HY150 epoxy.

Also, all of the plated bolts we are replacing tend to be pretty rotten with corrosion on the inside.... typically they are fused chunks of rust that we end up snapping the heads off with a breaker bar, then patching the hole with putty and sand.

Hope that answers your question.

Thanks again,

Ian
