Soft top bolt size?

I bought a used soft top that had everything but the four bolts that attach the frame to the roll bar. I bought several different sizes but none of them fit perfect -- #12-32 is the closest but not exactly it. Anyone know what the correct size is? Thanks for the help.

And before anyone says anything, yeah I know I shoulda checked with vendors on here.....but I was limited on time between trips and wanted to get it put on for a family day run!

By the way....look for a machined thread for autos.....the threading is different than your standard screw/bolt!
I got mine at lowes in the drawer, no problem, so did another member. M6x1 is the thread size, 20mm is the length. I dont believe its an auto only size at all.
