Bolts for Gas Tank Skid Plate

I need to replace some seals on my gas tank so my rusty skid plate is coming off. I bought one of those proline galvanized ones from Rovers North. I was wondering if anyone knew where I could get stainless bolts to replace the rusty ones that are in there. If not does anyone know the size of the bolts at least so I can look locally?

Thanks

They are either 10 or 12mm (I think 10mm). Google search metric bolts and you should find some.

Do they need lock nuts? How many bolts?

Put a lock washer at the bolt head and screw into place.

And get a stud extractor and drill ready for if (when) the bolt heads torque off. Give them a good soaking for 24hrs in penetrating oil before trying to take them out.

no need for a lock washer, theyll seize themselves back in place.



A lot of PB Blaster and a long breaker bar. I got mine off without breaking any.
