Guys that are running rivnuts and screws please send me info and the size of them. Images also will be nice. I will be installing OEM airdam and flares and want to use this method but need the sizes of them and where to get them.

Thanks.

The correct size is 4mm thread size by 12 mm long,oval shaped phillips head.I just bought some as I had to replace 2 screws on my all original factory Turbo.

I got them at McMaster/Carr.A box of 100 Stainless steel screws was $6.00

Those are the ones.Dead on match for the originals but they are better because they are stainless.

The Rivinuts look cool, but the originals have Black Plastic 4mm nuts that have a 9mm socket head.Carl Nelson has these

Draco02 - Go to Berg's Hardware in Pasadena - northwest corner of Allen & Villa. A great, old fashioned store run by a bunch of dry lake racers. You can buy fuel cells, competition seat belts, parachutes...they have every type of automotive fastener that exists. I've never walked out of the place without the part that I was looking for.
