Bolt size that attaches sport bar to windshield?

Hey guys, I'm new here, new to jeeps. Getting ready to hopefully take the top off my 03 Rubicon this weekend to install a bestop supertop.

In looking over the instructions and the Jeep I can't even get past step one:

"Loosen the top screw on the a-pillar molding. Use a #40 Torx driver to remove the outboard bolt that attaches the Sport Bar to the windshield. Slide the windshield bracket behind the a-pillar molding and re-install the bolt you removed to secure the bracket to the windshield"

The problem is both of the bolts (one on each side of the jeep) are missing. I've just got a holes instead of bolts. Obviously I need to replace these, but I have no idea what size/length of bolt this would be.

Can anyone help me out?
Thanks in advance!
