Elise Fuel door bolt

Hello all,

I tried searching all afternoon, but couldn't find a thread on this. Does anyone by chance know the size of the bolts holding the aluminum fuel door to the clam? I am missing the top one and would like to replace it to ease some minor OCDness on my end. The car has a BOE clam hinge installed, so I can only surmise the bolt was lost in the endeavor to install it. I know it probably doesn't matter much and I'm not planning to drive the car in a downpour.

Thank you!

I believe the thread on those bolts is M5 0.8 x 25mm, obviously, you'll want to match the heads too.
