NAS roll cage bolts...

I couldn't find this in a search and I'm sure someone here just knows this off the top of their head: what is the size and thread pitch on the bolts holding the oem roll cage?

I took the hoop off because it was looking tired and rusty, and did the cheap wire wheel and rattle can repaint just to keep it from getting worse... it had stainless bolts when I got it but they are tough to get in/out so I was thinking I'd run a tap through it to clean up the threads before I slathered it with anti-seize and bolted it all back together... is there any reason I should not do this?

I guess really I'm looking for the tap size I'll need to run it and just a word to a noob about if this is a good idea or not...

m10 1.5 if I recall correctly. Since you have to buy a tap anyway, why don't you just take a bolt with you to the store and hold the bolt up to the tap and match the threads up?

...'cause I'm an idiot?

I have an M10x1.5 tap right here...

Thanks for the help (I'll try not to be such a moron)

Follow-up Post:

Alright just to close this... it is M10 x 1.5

My excuse is that I wasn't feeling confident that I could eyeball the difference between 1.5 and 1.25 thread pitches

My bolts all go in nice and smoothly now

now I just need to slather them with anti-seize so it doesn't happen again

Hey John,

Try: http://www.boltdepot.com/metric-socket-products.aspx

It's not torx but allen drive. They also have philips panhead. I do not know much about them, just placed my order for $200 worth of metric bolts/nuts/washers etc yesterday for my frame swap. Have email confirmation of shipment same day. So good so far. Good thing about them is that they have different grades including 8.8/8.8 fine/10.9/stainless/chrome and there is no minumum order. I was going to order from Mcmaster but they come in such weird quantities and was more expensive. Just thought I would pass this along. We'll see when they get here.
