Crash bars DL-650 K5

I may have asked this before, can't remember right now.
When I first got this bike second-hand there were no bars mounted. As a quick and cheap solution I bought and installed crash bungs as seen in the main photo. Later on I got some OEM crash bars from another bike, but never installed them. I originally hoped to find a way to mount both bungs and bars together but in the meantime I have lost some of the screws/nuts/bolts and don't know which parts are missing.
Can we have some ideas, folks, as to whether this is feasible or not. Has anyone here done this?
In the case of removing the bungs and mounting the bars how can I replace any missing screws and separators; also, in view of comments regarding vibrations from said crash bars, what can I do to keep these to a minimum?

The crash bars I got came with a longer through engine bolt. You may need an even longer one to mount the bungs. Vibration can be controlled with proper tightening and foam in the tubes.
All lost nuts and bolts may be available at the hardware store though may not be of the absolutely correct size.
Can't vouch for availability in Spain.
In the US we have all sorts of industrial supply houses and such.
