Fun fastener question.


Recommended Posts

Just a fun one that came up at work today. What is everyones guess (Or even better, someone who has access to specific data) as to the total number of fasteners on a bone stock, unmodified new Herk? I'm talking about rivets, hilocks, bolts, screws ect.. The WHOLE lot. I am certain that this actual information is available, as every part, panel, and structural component has a print. I will try to find the real number, but in the mean time who has a guess. Helluva game of "how many jellybeans in the jar".
