Fender/Mudflap bolt thread size - Elswick Mistral

Hello to everyone.
So I bought some sks chromoplastics for my fathers old Elswick mistral that I've started using for commuting, and the M5 bolts supplied are a tad to big. Any ideas what the thread might be?
Thanks, Stu

Yeah they wont go in without cross-threading, I was wondering if anyone might know what the correct thread screw is. Imperial thread or something.
