Are the Nomad tailgate screws pretty generic Philips heads or are they a specialty screw? My reason for asking is My tailgate should arrive form California tomorrow and I like a kid on Christmas morning I have to try and fit it to the car. Just preliminary of course, I eventually will get those nice stainless baby's from Mr. Madmook along with a bunch of other goodies he has but for now I just want to bolt it in place and bask in the filled void.......:sign0020:


Thank Gents.....

There are some odd #12 in the lift gate. I think there are both some flat heads and some oval heads (flat heads with a crown) in common sizes. Might be wrong.


PS - update on your quarter-jamb in another post?

Yes it does thanks Mike, I have to check with Fasten All before I trot down there. I have to go check your site, my only reason for getting these now is as I said just to mount the tailgate but also I don't want to schmutz up nice new hardware with primer etc.
