Yeah, if you go to Home Depot, or Lowes, and go to the fastener aisle, you'll see big metal drawers with nuts and bolts in them. In some of the drawers will be 'specialty fasteners', just find the right size ones you need. I am not sure of the technical term for those kind of pins. Hehe, how do I know this? Most of the bolts in my car engine (SBC 400) engine are grade 8 or 5 from lowes :P

do they look the same as the normal body pins, or are they different? I am going to home depot today, so if they have them, i might as well pick them up because i loose about 5 a week.

Cotter pins are different. They are the ones which you would use to hold on a castle nut, you have to bend them into place. Body pins kinda look like cotter pins, but they snap into place. They should look something like this. You might want to take a body post with you to get the right size
