What sizes are the stock diffuser hardware bolts? I just got a black diffuser and was thinking about trying to find black hardware to go with it.

Thanks!

I think 8 MM but sorry, don't know the thread pitch. They go into removable clips so pitch probably not critical.

They are 5mm, I just paint mine black, works like a charm.

8mm is the socket size not thread size, you guys get that mixed up all the time.

I bought a stock black diffuser off another LT member. It has about half as many bolt holes as my stock 2007 diffuser does. I have 9 on my diffuser's leading edge. The new black one has 5. Do you think that is going to be an issue?

No I don’t think that will be a problem, you can always drill some more holes.
I have the Boe panel, it only has 4 screws.

I found some 5mm x 0.8mm x 14mm screws at BoltDepot that are black oxide finish that I used to hold mine. However, I was unable to find any flat washers in black, other than standard #10, which aren't quite big enough diameter wise.

Cheers.
