Find a better hardware store. It should be at all hard to find fine-threaded
You should be able to clean up and re-use the special nuts and bolts from the

simple, low-stress things
like the muffler and radiator brackets. But be sure to use the correct
hardware for the suspension, drivetrain, etc.!!!
