Source for S1 trim screws?..and one other question.

I'm replacing windshields in my S1 spiders and several of the long, skinny black oval-head trim screws are missing or have snapped off. These screws attach directly to the sheetmetal but have a thread that is more coarse than a machine screw. They are maybe 35mm long. Does anyone know of a source? Picture of the screws installed in the side trim....

Also does anyone have ORIGINAL hood/valance gasket fasteners on their S1 that they can shoot me an image of? I'm talking about the gasket that the hood drops onto and the screws that hold it in place. I've been using stainless screws and speed nuts underneath but it seems like there should be a better solution. Picture of the spot I'm talking about.

Thanks!

Wow, the Ace Hardware of Italy, only the OEM version. Shipping will cost more than the screws. Thanks for sharing.

Take a selection of the trim screws to Ace Hardware. They have them. I recently discovered the Jax also has a hardware department. The have a nice large fastener department.

As for the cowl cover, it's just sheet metal screws and speed nuts. It might be a good idea for you to get copies of the parts manuals.

I’ve been over to the “fastener aisle” at Ace 4 times this week trying to finish this car. They have a LOT but they don’t have these. I also use the lists but it takes time to find the right number and then it often doesn’t return anything.

austinhealeyspares.co.uk has chrome trim screws that match well. They come with a cupped washer that you don’t have to use. You can ask them about the shipping options to try to keep the cost down.

I have various sizes and lengths. All used....oval head. These are the longest screws used to hold inner windshield trim.
Let me know if this helps.
Cheers, Jon

Thanks John. Although yours may clean up in a tumbler, the problem I'm finding is that many of my long trim screws have become brittle with age. That's one of the reasons I'm looking for new ones. In the image you provided, the very long black #4 oval head screws are the ones I'm looking for (six or nine o'clock in your image). They are not machine screws and not self-tapping screws. Just another unicorn among many on these cars.

Have you tried Bell Metric? I found the DelLorto nuts there. maybe they'll have your screws?
