Deluxe Dash Passenger Side Map Light

Recommended Posts

I decided to depart from the Woodgrain look and had my main dash and passenger side dash inserts painted body color when my car was recently painted.

It goes nicely with my VHX silver faced gauges.   

In my quest to avoid messing up the paint on the passenger side dash piece, my question is what kind of screws are used to fasten the metal dash insert to the map light assembly?  

I would really like to use some chrome/stainless sheet metal screws with captive washers (aka SEMS) so the screw head doesn't mess up my paint.  I assume the same concern would apply when installing a recently restored woodgrain dash insert with new Vinyl or Di Noc.

Map light is not original, it is a Scott Drake reproduction.

Any advice/suggestions/lessons learned would be appreciated.

Thanks!   RPM, glad there were no casualties with the drop......

Mine is not countersunk either, so I headed up to the local bolt/fastener company on Monday anyway, and will try to source some stainless/chrome flathead screws with captive washers.
