Size of self tapping screws for headlight surrounds

Does someone know off hand what the size is for those and are they the same that is used in the interior dash? Thanks.

Headlight surrounds - #8 x 3/4" (generally same as Wingtop Vents)

Interior dash has LOTS going on...which specifically are you talking about? There are some #8 x 5/8" screws (Lower Dash, Instrument Panel, Door Panels). Check strap covers are #8 x 3/4" ...Demisters I prefer to use a #8 x 3/4" actually as it fills the "hole" in the demister better, but *technically* it's a #6 x 3/4" screw if I recall.

I'll leave you with this self-serving link if you don't want to "recreate the wheel" on the interior bits & pieces:

Also have exterior kits for 110s available as well.

Thanks Lav. I've been moving all fasteners where possible to plastic due to the never ending rusting on exterior parts unless required to be metal.

I believe we need to introduce you to Black-Oxide 18-8 Stainless Steel and 316 Stainless Steel .

Brewie built my truck so all the major fasteners are SS. Will black oxide corrode when used on powder coated steel? I do live at the beach so a lot of extra salt in the air.
