Gonna bump this, 'cuz I really want to do it, but I cannot for the life of me find the right size replacement bolts. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm looking for "6 metric bolts 10mm head 5mm thread size", as in M10 x 1.25(?) x 5mm bolts right? I can't find a 10mm bolt with that short of a thread. I can't reuse the existing bolts because they are no longer 10mm due to rust, and I'll likely have to get "creative" when removing them.

I'm tempted to just wrap the header at this point, but I'm sure those bolts will be just as bad, if not worse, than these heat shield bolts...

In any case, my embarrassingly loud rattley heat shield must be fixed.
