Convertible top body bracket bolts..I can't find them!


ok, have misplaced the bolts for the brackets in the picture. Must be 4 each side. Bolts into the body and takes the ram. 2 outer ones bolts to body direct, 2 inner ones bolt to frame and clamps frame to serrated plate. What do they look like? Anyone have some they can put pictures up? Have some but not sure if they are correct. Not 8 of them anyway. Imagine they have large washers attached to cover adjustment holes. Thanks all.

Had a look around and only found these bits and pieces but I would think that other bolts with large thick washers would work also.

Found my special place where i put bolts for the vert And found these. Not completely correct but they are the ones that were ised when i unbolted it. Notice the factory washers have teeth on the edges to bite into the metal. Locktite will do the same thing...

I won't be home until May 1st so I may not be able to help.  I spent tons of time last summer sorting all the OEM fasteners I saved over years of working on old cars.  I know I have body bolts with the washers attached in varying lengths.

The one other application I remembered for these bolts with the groves or teeth on the underside of the washers was attaching the deck lid to the trunk hinges.

they go on the ends of the piping that covers the staples that hold the top to the cross member above the window

I believe the piping that covers the staples is called a "hide-it". I've heard it called that on shows where they're replacing a convertible top.

correct or hide-em. Usually comes with a new top. Any trim shop that installs convertible tops may have that along with the  chrome tips / screw
