I made some from some plastic bushing/spacers that I bought from the local Lowes. They were in the nut and bolt section in the little pull out drawers. Just put a small bolt down through them and a nut and washer on the bottom, under the matel top plate of your starter box and you are good to go.

Nylon body posts from Duratrax or Associated work well too.
