    Tell me what size it is I'll get socket head bolts for these no problem in stainless or aluminum.

    Here are the specs on the factory fastener. I'll try to snag a picture of it later today.

    I decided against socket head bolts because I didn't want to jamb my finger on them every time I grabbed the handle to shut the door.......the screws I found work and look just like the factory, but in silver not black

    Thanks Ben, got em Saturday. I wasn't thinking that my door panels are a little different. 1982-'85 have a different arm rest / door pull than the '86-'94. They will still work, I'll just have to trim them down a little in the back. Going to wait because I'm in the middle of doing an interior color change, and I'm not sure which gen door panels I'll end up using. One more thing... they do shine up really well!

    Not a bad idea but I'm sure they look good with some billet interior but if u don't have any other parts to match they'd look outta place imo

    I've got plenty of billet, stainless, and chrome inside mine. Window cranks, steering wheel, trim around pedals, mirror, airtanks, compressors...I'll get some pics up when I'm closer to being done.

    I replaced all my interior screws with stainless as I pulled stuff out. Most of it is phillips as I had to special order the Allen screws in min of 25 pieces. The place I went to had phillips screws in just about every size I needed in stock.

    They don't really stand out so even if your interior is OEM they look good. I still have one pair left.
