Default Cahnging oil pan, where can I get new pan bolts?

Hey peeps, changing the oil pan in my Saturn as it's rusted through, but after taking it off I'm noticing that many of the bolts no longer seem to be reliable enough to last a long time without stripping next time they have to be used.

Do the bolts usually come with a new oil pan? If not, where can I get some new ones? And ugh... how much am i looking at? 5$ a bolt?



Thanks!

I'd be surprised if they weren't standard M6x1.0 bolts. But since they're steel, going into aluminum, you're more likely to strip the threads on the block than on the bolts. If you're worried about ROUNDING (not stripping) the heads, use a 6-point socket.

My bad, I did mean round off the heads. The problem is that they're very rusty. Although they may work now, I fear for later. Would finding regular stainless steel bolts be advisable or would they be too weak for even the low torque specs.
