Does anyone know the correct carriage bolt size for an MVS control panel (overlay)? Better yet, anyone have a link to purchase? Thanks in advance.

If you’re talking about this hole, should be 5/16x what ever you need in length.
Any box store should have them…
This is what I used. Confirmed to be the right size:
How do you know that 3KOAM used cadmium plated bolts on big red cabs? Source?Be careful removing any bolts. The metal has oxidized over the years and has likely released cadmium, which is a highly toxic substance. At least wear disposable gloves and throw the bolts in the garbage.
On the other hand, little goes quite so far as to make an old MVS cab look fresh as shiny new carriage bolts.
