obscure bolt size Q

Anybody know the size (diam and pitch) of the bolts that hold down the front hinges/legs of the rear seat in a samurai? I want to get new ones but I don't have any old ones around to get the size from!

I could just run a skinny bolt through the welded in nut with some washers, but the rear seat mount doesn't seem like a good place to get wimpy with mounting hardware.

Re: obscure bolt size Q

Rear seat bolts are the same diameter and pitch as the door hinge bolts. I used some on my Zuk for a while. If you're putting some in go the extra length and get satinless steel ones. That way you can easily get them out when you want to.

Re: obscure bolt size Q

Ive been to Foster Farrar about every day in the last two weeks getting bolts and other junk for little stuff on my truck, which is STILL not done.

I would have gotten them already on one of those trips but I didn't know the size. I see Cap'n answered below your post, too. I will get the good stuff and use never-seize besides.

I have been putting in the rear seat belts and hardware in the mornings but ran into the problem of having bedliner in the holes and a broken off bolt or something in one of the others. I bought some taps and a tap wrench and tapped out 3 of the holes. The ones for the rear seat belts were 7/16x20, which is kinda odd, but the center latch thingamajig is 10mmx1.25. I drilled out the fourth and then tapped out the threads after extracting the leftover bolt fragments.

In retrospect I discovered that you can spray white lube into the bolt hoels before you apply bedliner and it makes cleaning them up afterwards much easier.
