A fastener supply in just about any city should carry these bolts and grommets. The bolts are easier to work with but do not use them as an excuse to over tighten the covers. The spec is 22 INCH pounds for a reason.

I'm still waiting for someone to go with spring loaded fasteners with 2lbs springs.

I think I used 25mm; 30 should be just fine though.

supra sport wanted 15 + 10 to shipp..
http://www.suprasport.com/Valve-Cove...Kit_p_295.html

http://www.twosrus.com/
wanted 16+3 shipping

found something else online that was $3 for the screws and 10 for shipping. im looking tomorrow for something local. Ill just dig around till i find something I can pick up. so just as long as those specs work im in good shape.
thanks for the input
probably going to order these
http://www.boltdepot.com/metric-socket-products.aspx

so would you use the 25 or the 30? for length?
according to a sogi page they used the 30.
let me know Im gonna place the order tomorrow. if i cant find anything local.

also im no metallurgist. stainless steal? zing coated? the black finished ones? what will avoid corrosion and be a good strong bolt?

25 or 30 is fine, grab whatever you find, I had originally used female hex bolts, but later replaced them with pan head conventional hex bolts... they're just regular bolts with a broad washer like surface to distribute pressure. Got them in stainless for around $5 at a local Ace hardware store.
