I'd guess it would depend on the year and what options you have.

Are you using 'bolt' as a term to include all threaded or otherwise removable fasteners? Or do you intend to not include screws, grommets, etc?

Very important consideration.

If by bolt you mean any threaded fastener, I'm going with 778.

In that case, under the "Price Is Right" scenario, I'll go 779.

12% rule. If there are less than 12% of the total removed bolts remaining after all is said and done, you are good to go.
