Mystery Captive Bolt

Have been looking for a replacement captive bolt for my 156 JTS and can't find it on ePer and even TJ Vickers dealers couldnt find it either. Have loooked through entire eper on my model and nada. Have had a look at Fiats and Lancias too. just shows tantilizingly near pictures but not the actual item. Please put me out of my missery.
The two headless bolts are like rivets and are 'captivated' in a simple plate. They go through the rear of the front subframe to attach to the 'transmission tunnel' shroud. I know i could just get a couple of bolts and weld them, but want to at least try to get proper part.
Happy searching....

Still not got any further. I imagint i'll end up welding the three existing bolts and adding another. Shame.

I'd say as they're not listed separately on ePer then they almost certainly come with the subframe.

All the best
