Bolt Thread Size/Pitch For Hood Latch on a 356A?

Anyone know the thread size/pitch specifics on the two bolts that secure the hood latch to the underside of the hood on a 356A? Pretty sure the bolt heads are 8mm ATF. I need to get a tap to clean up the threads in the hood.

Best of my recollection, head size is 10mm, thread is 6mmx1mm(?). The standard 6mm thread; I may not be remembering the pitch correctly, but it's the one you'll find on every 6mm bolt or cheesehead screw.
