Laredo Horn Button Repair

Was wondering how to fix my Laredo horn button that has a Allen bolt missing.

I have another button where I can get the Allen bolt but was not sure how to get it out and reinstall it on the other one.

Anyone ever replace them with real Allen bolts. What did you use?

Looking for repair / restoration advice. Thanks!

I drilled out all the pastic ones and screwed metal actual allen head bolts in the holes. Looks fine. Need to paint the flats on the head silver if you want it to look "right" but looks fine with just black allen head bolts in there.

Next trip to Ace to look for rocket brackets I was thinking bout getting some Allen heads. I wanted to see if I could get the originals to work first.
