many kits available through the listed vendors...if you don't want to purchase entire kits, Fastenal, the box stores & chain hardware stores carry posidrive SS. For door hinges, you will need to grind the head slightly to fit, very simple/quick.

Read the descriptions. IIRC you just use the SW one and have the upper hinge bolts for the rear door left over. Everything else is the same I think. They also have a tire carrier bolt set and a tub to rear cross member kit as well.

What parts are you looking for? The buttonhead bolts that hold everything together on the rollcage?

I ordered a complete set of buttonheads, washers and nyloc nuts from a local supplier in stainless...

Grand total: 72$ canadian.

When I took the hardtop off, I stripped some of the rivnuts out on the windscreen header bar. I replaced them all with stainless ones. - cost me $32 for 25 nuts (only needed 6, but who knows where else I may need one?)

for what it is worth I am in agreement with Don and Paul as I purchased (and continue as the need arises) a bunch of stainless from Fastenal. As I take old bolts off, I just replace them with stainless.

Yes, I do this too for many things, but I have never seen the same bolts for the door hinges anywhere. Personally I just McMaster or Grainger as they are local and send a courier to my house the next day (or I can pick it up).
