Default Dave Patrick Ultimate 40 help!

I am repairing a old Dave Patrick Models Ultimate 40. The plane received some good (not good) hangar rash. The wing had something fall on it and it shoved the cabanes down into the plane and split the lower wing in half. I have it all repaired and almost ready to go but I am missing the little aluminum eye screws that hold the wing to the cabane. I am wondering if anyone knows of these and what makes a good substitute or where to get replacements. I have tried various other items have not found anything that keeps everything tight and inline. Open to any ideas.

I believe you can find them at Lowe's, or Home Depot...in the hardware section. They have various sizes of that kind of stuff, including metric bolts and Allen head cap screws.

Good Luck!!

I've checked all the hardware stores around and nothing close. I don't want to use eye screws, they just aren't tight enough. I found the ultimates from nitoplanes.com have the same set up but when I tried to see if they could get them I just got a response that they don't sell any parts for their planes. I may just build a new mount setup out of ply since I be seen some built that way.

I have a photo of what I am after if anyone has seen these anywhere. If I could get my hands on these silly things my life would be a lot easier!
