Hello folks: one of the first things I did purchased for my Passat wagon was getting installed the Dieselgeek Panzer Plate. With the passing of time and getting serviced I no longer have the 'bolts' that further secure the plate on the driver side, passenger side and in the front bumper:







Any suggestion(s) where I can get these? I would feel better to further secure the plate to the car.

Not sure about the panzer plate but I got a set of replacement hardware for my Thor plate from evolution import. I called em up and placed an order on the phone, maybe dieselgeek can get you a hardware kit. If they cant maybe the thor plate is similar enough that it uses the same hardware??

If you still have the clip nuts then I'm sure you can find a matching bolt at a local hardware store, just make sure its stainless or a grade with good corrosion resistance.
