air filter housing bolts

Does anybody happen to know the diameter of the 3 bolts that fasten the lower pan of the air filter housing to the fender? I think they are 8mm x 1.0 thread pitch, but I may be wrong. I don't have Mike's car here to check, and I'm working on a design for a support mount for the AFM. He has the Greg Gordon intake system, not stock.

Thanks muchissimo....

Super! Thanks mate! You even confirmed the pitch...

I want to soft mount the support bracket down to the existing holes in the fender, and take the weight of the AFM off the connecting hoses. I think the rubber mounts will give enough movement to allow for the revving of the motor. We'll see...

I'm missing the floating nuts in the holes for the filter housing. Does anyone have a source for those?

Could I use cage nuts like this?: https://www.amazon.com/uxcell-1-25mm...ds=m8+cage+nut

Sure, Hector... you can use that type as long as they will fit into the existing holes in the fender. Maybe you want to check a local Lowes or Home Depot hardware section, see if they have anything M8 x 1.25 that will fit. Easier to return if they don't fit, right?
