Hi,
Would anyone happen to know what kind of screws are used for a '94 RT/10? Particularly the screws for the lower dash kick panels and center console?

The local dealer has no clue. I went to NAPA and found some screws with the correct head shape ("Balkamp 665-1350 Phillips flat top washer HD tapping screws) but the threading is wrong (#8, M4.2-1.41). The original one is slightly coarser , so not #8. Wondering if anyone knew what kind of screws to use, and where to get them?

Thanks

Thank you Dean for the leads. I tried looking through them thoroughly, but couldn't find the correct fasteners. I'm hoping they were not a one-off type of thing, but they might be. I'm currently trying to find a parts manual and see if the part number might still be available.

The screws look exactly like that Balkamp item I posted, but the threads are off. The heads look the same, and they have the same diameter, but it appears that all #8 screws have the same thread (18 TPI), while these are 14 TPI. Maybe it's a metric thread, but I couldn't calculate a pitch that would make sense in metric. It seems a really odd thing to have a specialty part for

For the early Vipers - all the engine fasteners are US threads. With rare exception, all the rest of the body and frame fasteners are metric.
