MK3 Reflector-ectomy

I'm all for being conspicuous (I always put SOLAS tape on my helmets, and on my bikes here and there, often wear a hi-viz/reflective vest, and most bikes have had modulating rear brake lights) but I didn't like those big honkin' reflectors on the forks, so now they're history. I also removed the bracket with the side rear (round red) reflectors, and because I kept snagging my pants on the rectangular reflector on the rear fender while walking around in the garage, I replaced it with one of the round ones I'd removed. I'll have to reinstall everything to get thru DMV, but that won't be for another couple of years.

Thanks for the reminder to get a matching set of button head screws for my front fender so I can clean that up as well.

FYI: I just Partszilla'd two of the bottom bolts figuring the tops would be the same. I was putting in an order for other stuff, too; otherwise, shipping would be more than the bolts. I didn't try to source something at the hardware store -- getting lazy in my old age.

Any idea what the dimensions for those bolts are? For the hardware store enthusiasts out there!
