Just for future reference, where would I get the different bolts at?

i have always used anti-seize on these bolts. with the 2 dissimilar metals, anti-seize will act as a 'buffer' to keep oxidation, and the corresponding headaches, at bay.

i have never had any of the derby cover bolts loosen up on me. and that includes on my paint shaker rigid mounted sporty.

Hey, your every 5000 miles service requires that the derby cover be removed. Just hand the new one to the tech doing that service and ask that the new one be used when things are put back together. The cost to install should be very close to zero.

It's a wrinkle finish like on the motor.
