Please offer the correct bolt thread size for attaching a luggage rack to a T6 twin grille engine lid. See the photo in this link showing the threaded hole and open hole for the bolt.

8x70mm, 1.25, 14mm ATF (if you can find them). Cad-plated finish, Stoddard and others sell the mounting kit with 13mm ATF bolts.

If you do a Google search on the topic, there were a few threads on it.
