I didn't order the bolts. Mine may be OK (not been in there that long since engine rebuild) but if not I imagine they are standard metric machine screws? Maybe I should use stainless?

Thermostat will be here tomorrow. Gives me a chance to start dismantling and draining.
I used regular old ace hardware bolts. IIRC they are M6x1, which is common.
