Default Couple of parts

I finally recieved my GXP Strut tower brace and brackets but they didn't come with no bolts.... Does anyone know what size/thread bolts I need to get to connect the brackets and to the car?

Grilles... Are they are aftermarket grilles available?

$4 a bolt? Holy crap.

Go to home depot, lowes, or ace to pick up bolts if you have to. That price is ridiculous.
