    Screws for body attachment, for 1/32 and 1/24 scale

    Hi, My questions are: what is the size of the screws, that have some times been used to attach bodies to the chassis of 1/32 and 1/24 scale slot cars. I have some older slot cars that need those screws, and I cannot find them for sale at my local hardware store. I suspect then I will have to find them on line, but I need to know what size to search for. By the way, if you know of a sources for these screws,would you share that info with me also?
    Thank you!

    Flywelder, if you post this request on the HRW (Home Racing World) bbs too, you're apt to receive quicker answers.
    I like long walks, especially when they're taken by people who annoy me.

    Many would be #2 Pan head self tapping (sheetmetal) screws. Small sizes are hard to find, and many #2s strip out. I ended up using #4 size in my Whisperjet rental cars years ago.
    Ace Hardware or McMaster Carr could/should have them.
