Any one out there got a spare tail light lens screw surplus to requirements? I'm one short...screw I mean!
I've got a deadline, at 73, I want to finish it before I die!

Aren't we all? At least just a bit?

if we can determine thread type (Guessing BA) and length I will probably have one or something close.

Hi, not sure that it's a BA thread, as I had a problem when fixing mine, but I may have one somewhere let me know if you are still looking

I assume you mean the screw that screws the lens to the body of the light fitting. I think it's 6.32 UNC x 1.1/4". There was a post some time ago suggesting it was a good idea to change to socket head screws and they are (or were) available from Stig Fasteners: http://www.a2stainless.co.uk/
