Default OEM Rocker guard bolts - where to find some?

After 30 years the bolts are a bit rusty and I need a set. Anyone knows where to find some, except getting raped at the dealer(if they even have them)?

edit to satisfy those who do not know the answer, yet want more details to make sure they do not know the answer : "I am looking for bolts that hold an OEM cj8 rocker guards to the rocker panel."

thanks

How about a picture? Type of bolt (shape), diameter, pitch, and head type?

Have you tried a real fastener place?

I know by me, there's a place "quality fastener and bolt" that has or can get just about any type of bolt, for a fraction of the price of hardware stores or 4wd/quadratec/dealer. I'm sure there are similar local places near you.

Yes, we have a good hardware store, but they are closed by the time I get home. I was hoping to order some before I will be able to make a trip there and find out if they have something like it.

They look somewhat like these:


It looks like someone just boogered some metal together and is selling them on ebay. I can make something like this myself, I would like to find a set to buy though.
