Err those lil pegs that hold the M front/lower grill on are a pain

Had to try all types of push on nuts to thread cutter nuts, finally after searching all day I found these lil brass screw on nuts at Lowes in the furniture bin. Fit perfect just gotta be careful while tighting so you Dont break the plastic but boy was I happy to find them... Best pic I can take w/o climbing under (again)

If you bring that up there to lowes they should be able to point you in the right direction, if you need a better pic of the bar code let me know

Edit:
Think they are 2 bucks for 2 of them

About the same price but you don't have to pay for shipping and you can get them tomorrow instead of waiting
