Does anyone know the screws type/size on Parisienne CS 1965


Hey everyone, I'm trying to gather all the parts for the interior, bought mirror assembly but the mirror screw from OPGI doesn't fit the mirror's thread. Does anyone know the screw size for attaching mirror to it's base and screw sizes for attaching base to the ceiling. Also it seems to be a mix of different size screws currently in the car attaching those chrome trims, does anyone know correct size for those?

And also wondering what should be the size of the screws for those floor threshold panels?

Pretty sure I'll be looking for other screws info in the future:)

Thanks.

OPG and others have made their mirrors to fit a #6 phillips head but the bracket requires an 8-32 machine screw.

AMKPRODUCTS.COM  is a source for automotive correct fasteners.

8-32x1/2 actually works, thanks.
For the mirror brace it seems there 2 different types, can't tell which ones, I just happened to have ride from something else.
For the bottom panels seems it's #8x1/2, ideally truss head.

On the same subject line....If you ever happen to be down in the states, hit up a Harbour Freight for a box of assorted stainless screws. They come in handy in a lot of places in the interior of the 65.

I love all the handy packs they have in that store...

Thanks, I'll try:)
Yeah, I found one rusty screw and poked it around, figure a lot of interior pieces are attached with #8 screw of different length, mostly mushroom head. I got myself similar set on amazon, but not stainless steel. More like zink, will see how soon they'll rust.

Hi, a forever hunt. I actually had some luck at Lowes/Rona. The screws are called oval head and have that low profile head. They are in the pull out slider drawers in the fastener section and they are stainless to boot. Ive used them on the inner windshield trim and to hold the dash down. And a 65 B body as well,
Good luck,

There is a good selection of stainless screws at TSC (PEAVEY)
