Hard Top Screws

I want to put my hard top back on but for the life of me, I can't remember where I put the screws???

Anyone know of a website that sells them or the size so I can go down to the hardware store?

Thanks a lot!

they are metric im pretty sure, i work at a hardware store when i go to work tomorrow ill take one of mine off and go check it and let you know, unless someone comes in here before then...id guess a metric 10 or 12..in actually you dont need the exact size, you could buy any size bolts and nuts and just put them on there...theydont actually thread into the tub, there are little square nuts under it you can just take those out and get whatever size nut and bolt that will fit through it

Do you have the rectangular nuts? Just take those to the store. If you do not, just get whatever will fit the holes.

Yea that's why I use standard bolts from the hardware store. I couldn't see paying that either. I got all mine for less than the price of one of those

If you get new bolts, use wing nuts instead of regular nuts. The wing nuts lock in place so you don't have to hold them when you tighten them.
