No hardware store has them. There are two options, one is the slotted head which does not require new captive nuts, and then the proper phillips (maybe posidrive) that you have to swap out the captive nuts for.

JimC has the list somewhere.

here is the thread with the list.

The shape of the head of those bolts is quite
specific, at least on the cargo door of my 90.
I wanted to swap to ss, but i think it's better
to stick with genuine. If i remember well they
are m6.
RN has them.

Julien,

Not sure what you mean. The bolts on the doors on a NAS truck are all fairly common and the mcmaster ones are identical except for the thread pitch on the door hinges (which is why you need the square nuts).

I'm talking about the long ones on the cargo door,
the vertical ones.
The head has a unusual shape, it's kinda small,
the top of the head is not flat, the bevel angle
of the head seems to have more than 45 of
angle, only 1/3 of the lenght has thread.
But i guess Mcmaster may have something
very similar, i mean they have a big choice
of bolts.

On NAS trucks, the cargo door hinges are held on by normal bolts, but yes, the vertical ones are unique and I am not aware of a stainess replacement. The repair kits (which come with the bolt, brass ball, spring, nut and tab washer) include the bolt and are about $5 each from RDS. Those bolts appear to be galvanized or zinc plated.

Yep, they're galvanized, but it looks
like a poor coating.
I'm thinking about putting some
nipple greasers on the hinge barrel
to keep water out.

I packed mine with anti-seize when I replace them on the D90 and coated the tops of the bolt heads with waxoyl. I think they should be fine now. HUGE improvement with doing the repair kits.
