torx replacement for roll cage

What sizes torx bolts to attach the rear feet of the roll cage on an NAS 97 D90? Mine are rusted out and my local stores dont seem to have replacements. Any idea where to order online? I don't want to order the full stainless kit from rovers north

You can get them from AB or RN... Also, I would guess that you could request some here, as I am sure someone has some extras.

Rovers Down South has them also, I think the heads are slightly smaller than the originals, but they work fine and are pretty cheap...

Bennett,

I am pretty sure that I have 4 of them. I will find them and help figure out the sizes. What are they worth?

Couldn't you take your out and clean them up, repaint them and reinstall them?

Mine are rusty as hell. They probably aren't worth enough for you to dig them up. Maybe $10 new. Just figured people might know

Thanks scott

I just replaced mine with stainless steel hex head bolt works and looks fine, I have replaced almost all the bolts and screws I can get to with stainless though. Looks better than rust lines. Fastenal has or can get about anything you need.

Not to beat a dead horse but aren't stainless bolts a bad idea for the rollcage?

There's a good thread about alternative replacements and the general consensus was stick with the original type due to shearing strength in event of an accident.. search for it for more info...
