I go to pick up my 76 2002 this week from the body shop - it has been completely restored to original color (kinda excited).  Ive gradually been putting lights and bumpers on to make it legal to drive home... the last thing I have to do is put the drivers side mirror on.  I have the mirror, seal and lead insert but it seems the body shop may of lost the screws.  I am hoping the factory cage nuts are still in the car frankly I can't remember - does anyone know what size thread and length screws were factory for a 76?

They are M4 20mm long - CSK. fillister head screws.

See page 51/25 from Real OEM for more info. HTH Beaner7102

Suggest using stainless steel screws to thwart rust.  Also replace the slotted head set screw that holds the mirror to the mount with a stainless steel allen head set screw.  Much easier to tighten properly without worrying about boogering up the screw slot.

Mike thanks for this tip - actually i just replaced the screws to stainless today but hadn't even considered the slotted head set screw... great thought as you are totally right it would be a lot easier to have allen head. Far as i am concerned after paying for a paint restore, every screw on this car will be stainless by the time I'm done with it

Now to a much bigger problem... turns out my cage nuts are gone in the door and was just told by Blunt that they are NLA.  Yikes - any suggestions?  My door has the original holes with a slotted edge.  -rd
