Any number of suppliers can provide these. Nothing special. Just search M5 stainless socket headed bolts. Length can vary but the original steel ones are about 15mm. Washers similarly are M5 stainless x 15mm external diam

Maybe I am missing something but on the Ebay link M5x15mm is not listed as an option

I don’t understand the need to surround the engine with a small airfield.

Here you go...


Perfect Bladerunner. I ordered the bag of 50 so happy to supply two others. Will leave them in my car for the next meeting.
I do like shiny, so silver would be great. Have dropped several fasteners into the engine bay so 'built in' washer is a must. The word flange in the description is irrelevant.
company are UK and state "made in house" so keeping my effort to avoid Chinese manufactured tat.

The tie-downs in the boot of a QP rust like **** too, so replacing them similarly would be a good idea.

I've been thinking about something like this. Originals are shouldered and flanged - someone did point out that bike fairing bolts aren't bad - eg these at three quid EACH!
I think I like those black ones though...

the screws i bought are not ideal for the under bonnet cover. The built-in 'washer' is smaller than original fastener. Also the original fastener has a shoulder to prevent the cover ending pinched when tightened.
they are a good fit for the grille though :)
