What size bolts hold the steering column plate to the floor/firewall?

Anyone know what size these bolts are and where I can get them?

There are three bolts holding the steering column baseplate/cover to the firewall, but for the life of me I can't figure out what size they are...

Thanks,
Jason

Do you mean the plastic cover plate that goes on last? Sort of a weird U shaped cover? Or the steel two-piece plate?
I'll pull one of mine and get you the specs if someone doesn't beat me to it.

I just adjusted this plate on my car. They are 1/4" sheetmetal screws, but I think I remember that there are 4. Two in each half.

69 SS, 350/300 h.p., M-20, 12 bolt, matching numbers.

Thanks for your help guys...I mean the steel two piece plate that bolts to the floor.

The holes are pretty big so I assume it was some some of bolt/washer combo from the factory.

Here's a link to a repro piece...

Man, chasing down the various bolts and fasteners you need is annoying! LOL

Sorry forgot to mention my car is a 69 and uses 4 sheetmetal screws with large fender washers.
