Default Evolution 80GX muffler issue

Soon after my friend Pritch made several flights for the MA Review photos(SU-26MM and Evolution 80), the muffler bolts came loose, and he landed with the muffler dangling by the ground wire.
We can't locate the proper size replacement bolts.
Also, the muffler, as well as the attachment flange on the motor are tapped.
How are people securing the muffler with this rather odd configuration?
Any help appreciated...croz

What muffler was used here, the Evolution black inverted Pitts style with the smoke fitting?

Would a canister be better for this motor? Where can you get a proper fitting canister for this plane/motor?
