'74 CJ5 Side View Mirror Bolts??

So I ordered a set of side view mirrors for my '74 CJ5 and they just came in. I went to put them on and noticed the Jeep doesn't have any hardware for them, but it does have the 4 bolt holes. What size bolts are these? They look to possibly be 1/4"-20, but I thought I would check before running to the hardware store. Length would be a good thing to know as well if anyone has it.

Thanks,
Scott

I believe they are 1/4-20 if I remember right. about 1/2" long.

So I went out to install and found out only the passenger side hinge has the bolt holes. I tried to put a 1/4-20 into it and it wouldn't even start (too big). I think I am just gonna drill all new holes and make them 1/4-20's.

Seems like every "easy" job I try to do to the Jeep doesn't go smoothly. Oh well, I guess that is just part of owning a Jeep.

So after 2 broken taps in just the passenger side hinge, I am thinking perhaps new hinges already drilled for mirrors may be needed.

Does anyone know where I can get them for a '74 CJ5? Everything I see says '76 and up. Are they the same?

Thanks,
Scott
