What screws mount the gauges to the plastic gauge housing? (SS)

Iím missing the screws to mount the gauges/retainer to the actual plastic gauge housing. I think itís a 1/4 inch head but whatís the rest? If someone could link some that I could buy that would be great! Also does anyone know how to put the red plastic brake light on the housing?

Re: What screws mount the gauges to the plastic gauge housing? (SS)

The screws are pretty much like Sheet Metal Screws. I took one of the screws from my dash and went to the local hardware store and bought some that were close. If they don't fit all that well you can put a small amount of plastic model cement in the towers and they'll tighten right up.

This PDF is cool, but doesn't answer your question...

70Chevelle, get an Assembly Instruction Manual for your model year car. In it you will find a diagram of how the dash gauges are assembled, with part numbers for the fasteners, with the gm part #, go to amk products, type in the part number, they have it. You can buy 1 or a kit to do the whole instrument panel. Terry

Restored a 72' U14 dash, got this kit: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1970-72-Che...72.m2749.l2649

Also, I keep up to date catologs, so I can check out the parts specifically for my application. Great way to solve some problems. Photos are very helpful in them.
