  • Body / Glass: 54 coupe taillight trim screw attachment

    My screws are bare metal flat head slotted screws. I suspect the correct screw is domed a bit and phillips head?

        Very few stores, including Fastenal, stock fillister head screws. The demand simply doesn't warrant it.
        ACE may be able to order them in for you. Fastenal definitely can if you have one near.

          Is that chrome finish or galvanized?

              When I buy them I get stainless.

                  I buy stainless machine screws, and chuck them in the drill, and take a file to them, and make fillister head screws. Ya gotta do whats ya gotta do.
