Bolts for fiberglass top

Bought a ST that comes with a fiberglass top. Some of the bolts are missing. Is there a kit I can buy to replace? Thanks.

From what I remember, they aren't anything special. You should be able to get stainless replacements at a hardware store.

Bolts can be found most stainless steel section of hardware store, trick is the washers. I ended up having some square ones punched out of stainless local fab shop. Easy enough w Scotchman or something similar, hard part convincing shop to due handful of them

I remember using square washers on mine too. I think to fit inside the rain gutters but still be big enough for the bolt? Probably more of a rectangular shape washer than square. Was able to source mine from a local hardware store. Nylon lock nuts on bottom. Use waterproof silicone sealant in the seams around the area where the top meets the front windshield frame.

I use rope caulk (also called cord weatherstrip or strip caulk) instead of silicone. It has the consistency of play-dough or modeling clay but does not harden. It's much easier to remove and apply. I put it on the bolts along the top of the windshield and the bolts where the top meet the side panels. It has the added benefit of acting like a cushion between the bolts and fiberglass top.
