I need a good screw....molding screws that is...

What are you members using to replace missing molding screws? I need the 3/4" and the longer 3" black "wood screw" large head type screws to remount the molding which was not maintained by the original owner.
I'd like to buy them in bulk or by the tens if I can.

I went to a place called Fredís Nuts and Bolts he had what I needed just gave him one of each and he brought them out.
Unless your in CG Arizona it doesnít do you much good.

But the point is I would of never dreamed they had that stuff, the guy at the Dealership actually sent me there.
So maybe where you live you can ask the dealership there where you might get them.
Also check your ACE Hardware stores they are starting to carry more screws and bolts. Heck they carry gun screws out here now.

I'm a fan of https://www.auveco.com for little bits like screws and interior hardware if I'm trying to stay factory. Catalog can be a bit of a bear to dig through though.

Sometimes I use silver screws and black spray paint. The key is to let the paint dry before you pick them up. Lol

My first stop for bits like that is Clips and Fasteners. But now that I look closer they mostly sell the Auveco stuff kg6mov linked to.

Not sure what you are looking for but do you have a Napa near you?
If so if yours is anything like mine they have this big loose leaf binder there.
Has all sorts of stuff like this in it.
Not pictures but the actual piece.
If you have one of the originals then you can see if you can match it up easy enough.
If not a perfect match might be able to find something close that will work.
Better then trying to work off pictures, descriptions, and measurements.

Locally, I have 2 places. Diamond Screw Products (DSP) and we have a shop that sells pretty much everything you need for body work and interior work. Look around and see if you have either of those?

I will say that DSP only takes cash on small purchases (like under five dollars).

Can't believe no one's mentioned the Junkyard yet. At my local JY there always at least 10 ZJ hulks and you can pretty much find any trim panel screw you need

I went to the Upullit&Pay today, 40 miles away and filled a 1/2 coffee can with Jeep GCL screws from Jeeps going to the crusher for a buck out the door.

Thank you for all the replies,I do appreciate it.
