Default Pressure plate bolts?

Anybody know the specs on these bolts? Tried to finish my car today, but I seem to be missing these bolts and washers, probably went with my old clutch when I sold it. Figure I might try a bolt store on Monday if I knew exactly what to ask for.

I would only trust a bolt like this from Mazda.

A bolt is a bolt, as long as its the right hardness, and the head of the bolt doesn't rub against the pressure plate. I like little 12 point heads that allow you to actually get a socket on there and not have to fight with it. I would still want Mazda parts. Couldn't cost more than a few dollars a piece.

I'm going to just order them from Mazda on Monday. Time to enjoy my weekend, have a few beers and go to the zoo.

it doesn't matter. they're just like most of the cad plated steel bolts on the car. you only torque the PP to 14-19 ft-lb anyway.

If I was to go to the store and find some, which ones do I want? M.net searching has given me a couple different sizes. M8 x 1mm and M8 x 1.25mm are the two talked about most often. Nothing certain about the length though.
