Where to get Stainless Screws for front door hinges

I am looking for a stainless version of the stock hinge screws to replace the ones on my D90. The size of the stock ones are M8-1.0, oval head phillips/posidriv, about 1.75" and 2.25" in length. I cannot find them anywhere in stainless, McMaster and Fastenal only have the M8-1.25 variety. Does anyone else know where I might be able to find these oh so rare screws?

Last week I purchased a bunch of stainless screws and nuts from McMaster referencing a list I got off this forum (that I cant seem to find here lately so will attach pic) which included the McMaster part #s, I received those screws and found them to be almost entirely different from the stock screws as they were standard, not metric, and all about a quarter inch too short! Maybe that's why Rover didn't use stainless screws originally, they couldn't find them!

That list is few years old, so I can't vouch for the part numbers any more. Also, using the standard sized bolts requires pulling out the captive nuts (J-nuts) and swapping the captive portion for the square nuts that are listed on the spreadsheet next to the bolts. The selection of metric stainless wasn't as good back then because no one had gone to the effort of sourcing pozidrive head countersunk metric bolts in the correct length. Now several companies provide reasonably priced kits, but I believe the best one comes from Nakatanenga.de

Good luck, let me know if you need help getting something shipped, I live in Germany and, worst case, I could forward you a small package through the APO.

Thanks for your reply Jim,
I've looked at Nakatenenga and found these:

on their UK supplier site. Is this what I should be ordering? Seems like a good deal.

Having been through the Stainless Steel hinge bolt thing, I will never use them again. Stainless galls, even with anti - size as lube. It's a major PITA to fix stainless fasteners that have galled and effectively welded themselves together, particularly the hinge bolts on the bulkhead side. IMO, exercise caution.

Truth. I completely agree. I used stainless but was very careful during assembly. Not sure I want to take it apart again

I've used plenty of stainless and have had great luck. I always use anti-seize and you can't torque like crazy.

I just got the complete kit from Nakatanenga themselves at their store.

X2. Used the supplied anti-seize and had zero issues backing the screws out two years later, just to check for potential issues. There were none.
