Dash screw sizes

What is the screw thread and size for the dashboard inserts on a 96 era 205, the top ones in the picture. My MCOCD is starting to kick in and want to get rid of the duct tape and the stainless screws.

size looks like the size you pull out of your junk screw jar... Take one out and take it to home depot...match it up with a new one.

stop at home depot and buy X of several sizes. or scope out a hardware store in the area of your boat that you can go to once you pull a screw?

I installed T-Nuts backwards using JB Weld - just drilled out the holes, cut the prongs off the T-Nut using a side cutter, little blob of epoxy around the hold and stuck them in. Works great - they dont' spin!

Great, @88PS190, I was going to replace them all and install new wide flange rivnuts in a sheet behind the original fixings that have come out / loosened so similar to what you have done.

@crashcourse316, that would be an option if I lived in the states, the UK and France are metric so getting imperial fittings takes time and a specialist fixings supplier

RIP,

I would still go get a few to test out. sizes are close enough. I use metric stuff in imperial stuff all the time. Also that type of not really specific screw in should work fine even if you are slightly larger. I don't think its going into anything that requires a specific size. just size up to the closest one.

Maybe I'm wrong though if someone wants to tell me.

also its B&Q there my bad....
