The only allen bolts I could find in the hardware store to replace the brake-away bolts were metric, "standard thread".  My mechanic/tutor insists (loudly and forcefully) that there are no metric bolts anywhere on a British car.  An yet, the metric ones were the only ones that fit.  If this lock is not British, I may need a different key blank. Any thoughts?  
They should be 5/16 x 24 thread.
