Wierd how info keeps showing up as needed here ... I have ordered custom plates , and expect them anyday now . So I was wondering about the size of those screws . mine are rusted , and I'd like to replace them with stainless steel , if I can find any in 6x1.0 mm .
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."
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)
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.
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.
