bolts torx screws for jeep top, where to buy them?

Where can you get the torx screws that fasten the hard top to the tj body? I had to drill one out and they didn't have any at Ace hardware. I did pick up a bolt to replace it but I figure I'd get one that matches the rest.
Thanks

I just went to the local hardware store and got completely new hardware for the tops last year. idk what to do if you can't find them though.

it's probably easiest just do do what you state, we always have a a socket set in the garage but not always the right set for torx screws. What did you use to replace the nut that is set in the plastic part underneath? Just a regular nut?
Thanks again for the help

Has a great set of fixing bolts with molded black plastic thumb screws and nut plates.

You can fasten and unfasten the hard top with no tools !

They also have a similar kit for the soft top frame.

I really like mine.
