Junkyard finds and brake question

Hey guys, great day today at Harrys U Pull it in Pennsburg PA. Took some M brakes, rotors, hubs and spindles. Spoiler, door panel, leather arm rest, cup holders tray and housing, ash trays, switches, e brake boot and leather handle, sunroof panel, nuts and bolts, and some trims. For a little over $200. So pumped!

Only issue is somebody stole the brake pads and the screws that hold the calipers tight or something. Spring loaded? Or what am I missing, I see threads on the back of the calipers so I know something was there, can I use the ones off my current calipers?
Cheers!

We don't know. Show us a picture of where the threaded holes are and we'll figure it out.

Do you need brake pads? I have a ton of spares that are in pretty good shape for E36 M3 brakes. PM me and I'll run you through what I have. Would really like some help clearing out my garage...

These are the screw holes, where the caliper rests over. Am I missing a simple screw or?

Agree - Missing these, go ahead and get a 7mm hex socket, makes the job easier.

Sweet jumping Juniper Spaghetti Monster... what kinda parts do you have laying around that you no longer require and I can help relieve off your hands and garage? Brake pads are always in need by me. Don't ask why.

Still in NoVA?
