The part number/description for the three bolts are: F0706040 Hexagon head screw - M6x40 - 8.8 Steel – Zinc plated 

Are the threads 1.0mm pitch or 1.25mm

One of the bolts backed out and now has a nice round head, probably gonna use some blue loctite.

Wicks confirmed today it was a 0.75 pitch, and had Wicks to order the bolts....couldn't find any 8.8's anywhere.
