Does anyone have any experience with these "screw kits" from NCA? I was pretty disappointed with the selection at the local hardware store.

For 15 bucks would by them just to see if they worked!

I have purchased 2 sets of these screws and consider then a real bargain. The quality is very good. However, if the screw hole is enlarged or stripped, you will probably need a larger diameter screw.

Good luck with yours!

In the past when a trim hole was larger than the appropriate screw I just stripped some copper wire and fed it into the hole and then put the screw in, works fine.

I have purchased several different screw kits from them when I was putting my sedan delivery back together. OEM type fasteners and clips are just not to be found anywhere. I've been very satisfied.

Glad you asked the question. I was looking for screws for my '51 coupe.
