    Howdy. I took my cap off, nice weather. Stuck the bolts in my toolbox. Then someone stole my toolbox, grrr. Went to the Chevy dealer and it's $5/per for the long bolts and $1.25 for the shorter ones. Anyone know what kind of bolts I should get at the hardware store instead? I dunno what the length/threading is. Thanks!

    How about a junkyard? Might be cheaper than the bolt store and still be the correct ones.

    The idea behind the bolts is they're pointed as well as threaded for easier installation. I'm pretty sure they're 3/8ths. As long as you can thread them in they won't make a difference.
