As I recall the character, played by Micheal Keaton, is remodelling. Someone comes in and asks "Are you going to use a 220 connection on that?" Sounding as manly as possible he replies, "220, 221, whatever it takes."

Thats me buying autoparts. :G

i found some stainless steel metric license fasteners at the local advance auto,but they use a theft resistant allen key(the screw head has a little nib in the center and the allen key has a matching hole to allow it to fit)
but they are stainless steel(which is cool)

I needed new license plate screws and went to my dealership to ask about them and the parts clerk just gave me a couple.
no hassle, right size,

Matt,

Sounds like the way my Toyota parts department treats me! :G

It's like anything else in life, if you establish a friendly relationship with a business (pub, bar, restaurant, parts store) and they get to know you, life is more pleasant for both of you. They recognize your loyalty and will do everything they can to keep you as a customer. If you walk in and treat them like dirt then you should expect to be treated the same way.

If you'll recall, we learned this in Kindergarten.

Hey CDan,

Are the threads coarse or fine. I picked up a 6 mm 1.0 pitch yesterday and is was still to tight to screw all the way in. I didn't notice the thread type.

I have a 92, any thread difference.

I confirmed the 6 x 1.0mm last night and replaced the rusty screws I had with stainless ones based on this thread. Fit perfect. :G

There is no coarse of fine thread type as in the US standard fasteners. It's all in the size. 6x1.0 mm means 6mm diameter and 1 thread every mm. So if you wanted a finer thread it would be something like 6x1.25mm or 6mm diameter and 1.25 threads every mm.
