YJ hardtop windshield screws

Hi All. I am installing a new windshield frame and want to start with small screws as I do not remove the hardtop. Haven't had luck finding specs or pic for what goes in there. Is it a screw or bolt? How long? Were they Phillips or hwh? Length and diameter would be helpful. Don't have jeep near me and looking to pick these up. Thanks.

Its what I used before the holes were reamed out from overuse.

I had this kit installed when body shop was fixing the holes from the windshield channel for the soft top. I had them install threaded inserts for that as well, could not deal with the self tapping screws;

I like that idea too.
When I had got my Jeep the screw holes were already enlarged, I am currently using a #12 screw for my windshield channel. My next step is to use the nutserts or the repair kit.
