    Anyone know the bolt/screw sizes used to attach the vent window frame to the door on a 79 c10?

    Was planning to replace them, but LMC doesn't sell them separately it appears. My son apparently threw the old ones away (teaching moment :) ).

    Thanks!

    I had one missing from my passenger side. I just got real patient and pushed a bolt through and screwed a lock nut on with long pliers holding the nut inside the door.

    I have no idea offhand but I would imagine they are easily found and replaced if you take one off the other door and go find it's match at an ace hardware or whatever local place best serves up fasteners in your area.
