Whindshield Bolts?

I'm in the process of changing my windshield frame and my dad accidentilly destroyed two of the aluminum bolts which go in the frame. Anyone know where you can pick up these bolts aftermarket? I'm sure Jeep will be glad to gauge my eyes out for them.

im parting out my rusty 1991 wrangler. sold the windsheild and ended up drilling out 6 of the bolts.

just go to lowes or home depot and get some hex or allen heads. unless of course, you actually LIKE torx? you dont, do you?

OMG do not buy these, unless you are some sort of jeepaholic that likes to tear your hair out every time you go to replace a bolt.

actually I agree - they do suck - l like the idea of going to HD / Lowes for allen head bolts etc considering I too have to drill out the tailgate bolts and replace them - obviously you just need to get the same thread pattern
