Remember that the length, diameter and thread size is only part of the story. Some of the heads were domed. Some of the heads were "taller" than todays bolts. The heads didn't have hardness specified on them. You can't just get these at the local hardware store. For a correct restoration you need to restore original fasteners or order them from suppliers that have the correct heads.
