1974 Vogue Casita Grande

I am currently completely restoring my 26 1974 Vogue Casita. I have removed all of the carpeting and replaced it with hardwood floating flooring. In doing so I had to grind off the bolts holding down my driver and passenger seat plates and the seat belts. I need to find a source for the bolts that I removed. They had very flat 4 corner 7/8 heads, 3 long, 7/16 fine threads with locking nuts. I need 12 new ones.

ACE, Home Depot, Lowes all have grade 8 bolts, nuts, washers that will make perfect replacements

I'm guessing here that the old four corner head bolts were not grade 5 or 8, so one or the other will be better. Unless your are doing a restoration where they will show.

Bolts

The bolts will show, and if the heads are the common height might cause someone to stub their toe. The original heads were less than 1/8 inch high. Very low profile.

You may want to look for bolts that use torx drive. These can be bought with rounded low profile heads with the torx drive in the center.
Find a fastener supply company in your area and take a sample of what you need.

Check with a supply house called Fastenal. If they don't have it they can probably get it or find a good substitute.
