Anyone have a part number/source for the 3 screws that hold the headlight retaining ring? Bought what I thought was them but they are to large of diameter and length.

Ace, Home Depot, Lowes in the metric cabinets. I used allen head screws because they are easier to install.

Should be a 4mm * 8mm pan head. Looks like Porsche decided that 8mm was a PIA. Most have been updated to 12mm. But a socket head easier and more functional. Easier to guide in and hold on too. My .02c.
Working on the same thing on the Rothsport Mexican 1000 rally cars.

4mm * 8mm pan head. Like this, but shorter ...............

We're not all on the same page. Apples & Oranges.

The 3.5 *13 holds on the cover /bezel. Sheet metal screws going into spring nuts.

The chrome ring that retains the headlight itself is held in with a 4mm * .7 threaded screw.

I stand corrected, .7 pitch. My thread gauge didn't go that small.
