    I need a close up pic of the screws that hold the dash bezel on. mine had no screws in it at all, I'm gettin the aluminum dash trim panels refinished and would like to have the correct screws to put it back together.

    The factory screws looked like this:

    These are available as repops on eBay:

    So are these:

    The last set shown have the proper threads but the head is a little short, slightly smaller in diameter and take a different size allen key.

    I used them on my console and they look pretty good.

    Is the 2nd Gen oil pressure gauge listed on your web site?

    Good post Terry , thanks.

    I need them as well. That helped alot.
    Looks like the Ebay one's are very different.
    Smaller thread pitch and squared off ends.

    The middle set look like machine screws to me.
    If you turn them into plastic mounting tabs (dash) which already have different pitch threads..... I can see them stripping out.

    They are NOT going to thread cleanly into the shifter bezel where they thread into a metal plate on top of the shifter.

    See, I would think the machine screws would screw in better in the metal tabs.

    But I have no idea for sure. I guess I'll have to order the coarse thread one's for my dash bezel mounting.

    Sorry - dumb question

    Where do these screw go? Do these go with the gauge cluster bezel? Does anyone have pics of them in use?

    Thanks
