On my early TR4, I used socket-head cap screws and Nyloc nuts.  No problems ever again.  Ran the car in autocrosses and road for ten years.  Never had to retighten.

Same diameter bolt as original.  Length can be determined by measuring the old bolt.  If that one did not have enough length to support a Nyloc, add a half inch.
