    My NAPA store has them... they have a small parts fitting binder under the counter that they turn to for them... About $5 a bag.

        It will likely help your search if you call them barrel nuts instead of bolts.

            I always attach nameplates and such with clear RTV. That way, it does not chip the paint and lead to rust.

              Now there is an interesting idea. I would have never thought to use RTV for that application. Thanks.

                  Available in at least six different sizes; be certain what you need. You can probably buy just as few as necessary at any old-time body shop.
