If I were to give you this link: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/machine-screws-10-pack-nuts-washers-m3-m4-m5-m6-a2-stainless-steel-bolts-mm-/232222994707?var=531432201877&hash=item361191b113:m:m7lxVXu9srZ4ng3ZcaABFqQ

And ask you which nuts/bolts I should be buying (size wise) to fit it to Matilda (my midget), what would you say?

God gave me a mouth for talking, I'm not sure why he gave me hands when it comes to any DIY.... please don't judge me ;o)

If you have a set of calipers (or even an accurate ruler) the easiest way would be to measure the hole, then get the highest whole number below your measurement. Bolts are measured by the widest point of the thread, so a hole that's 10.5mm would fit a 10 mm bolt. If you don't have one, just bring it with you to your local auto parts or hardware store and see what fits.

Got a drill bit set. Use the bit to determine the hole size. Then use that info on bolt size. And also I love stainless bolt and screws. Put them on Midget for taillights etc so no rust stains on the lens etc. Maurice
