I have the heater about all rebuilt. Cannot find the appropriate Fastners to bolt it to the firewall in the box of parts I received with the car. The box itself has quarter inch holes through plastic tabs. The firewall has small screw holes through in the same locations. It must be some unique fastener or something. Can anyone help? Thank you
Kibler.

don't know what vendor carries them but they're square headed bolts. The recessed area of the box was intended to keep them from turning as they were tightened. That fiberglass is probably pretty fragile by now and it doesn't take much to snap it.

Don't recall what car you have - alter your footer to remind us - but on my Ambo the fibreglass box is held on by self-tappers.

The box is undamaged and quote robust but over the years it had sagged away from the firewall, letting in a howling gale, so I bolted some tabs to it to hold the top of the box more securely.
