Hey everyone I want to replace my bolts on my 2006 qp license plate because the ones now are rusty. Does anyone know what size you need for a perfect fit?

It seems like license plane bolts/screws are always knackered up. You would think they would make stainless screws that look nice just for this application.

I'm pretty sure it is 6x1mm thread off the top of my head...Go to the hardware store and get some stainless hardware....They get screwed up because people go into their junk drawers and try to attach license plates with anything they can find and bugger up the threads.....Jason

i've seen some terrible things done to trunks with the wrong screws.... there is hardly any clearance between the plate mounting bracket and the trunk surface... you'll probably need to get a few lengths x4 to get the plate secure without the screw reaching the trunk.
the mounting bracket also doesn't have it's own threads, it has slide on metal clips that have bent tabs to hold a screw, thus thread pitch should be irrelevant.
