Summit sells bolt kits for oil pan, timing cover, water pump separate or you can get a kit for the whole engine.
You have your choice of bolt head style and either plated or stainless steel.
Any speed shop would have them too.
Whatever pan bolts you get, get the ones with a washer type head that will stay tight and not leak as easily.

you could also hit the local boneyard and pull the bolts off an engine sitting in the mud, and probably pay nothing for it.

I've been kicking around the same thing. For $63 bucks seems like you can buy a lot of standard grade 8 bolts from TrueValue. We just need to know all the sizes. If I can find that out, that's the route I'm going. If you find a source of the info let us know.
Good Luck

aren't they 1/4-20 bolts around the outside and on the ends I think they're 3/8.

Don't go to the speed shops they just tell you to go to true value and look at you like your a moron. I was trying to get the nice sets like ARP or something when I was asking.
