    Yes they do sell the blanking grommets...4 to a pack imperial sizes so get the conversion chart out lol I needed 10 the other day....had to buy 12....3 packs of 5/16 came to over $18! Those blister packs are a great way for them to sell 15c grommets for $1.50+ each :-/

    Been there Dapom!:mad:

    Try buying Stainless Steel Nuts & Bolts from Bunnings.........2 different quantities of each in separate blister packs! That is, if they have matching metric or imperial ones on the shelf.......o_O

    Gave up in disgust, and went to a trade retailer, for a fraction of the cost. ;)

    Found the same thing when sourcing stainless screws for my front blinkers & rear lights, much cheaper at a specialist and usually get exactly what you want. trouble is the small specialists are going the way of good T3 mechanics :(
