    I managed to misplace the bolts that hold the door hinges onto the car when repainting it and am hoping someone knows the bolt size, length, thread so I can at least get temporary bolts in for the time being. They are the 3 bolts that hold each of the 2 door hinges to the body on each side. Thanks a million!!!!

    I will see what I can do when I get home, I have one sitting at home. I don't know how if I can measure the threads though...

    I JUST went through the same issue with my race car. Fortunately, I ended up having to go to the junk yard anyways so, I just snagged some there. I will measure tomorrow when I get to work and let you know.

    It is a 1/2 inch head and is 1 3/8 inches long from end to end. For the pitch, the easiest thing to do is just remove the bottom plate from the inner door (they slide right out) and match it up when you go to the hardware store.
