Do you know where you can get them? As in another thread, I am moving the
rear ladder over to the new car and I need a few.

What size ? I have some M10, but that does seem a bit big.There are some
M8 and M6, somewhere. Let me know what you want.

There is actually a proper tool for inserting them. Which is far
quicker if you have a lot to do.

Well, it's got to support a rear ladder which will take my weight, so M500
sounds right :-)

ISTR the holes I drilled originally were about 5mm, if that makes sense.
This is a new fitting, though, so I can drill to suit.
