    What is the general consensus on the correct screw type, size, length, OD washer for the tail lamp cover?

    From my XP29N0G:

    CLOSE-UPS:
    Not a separate washer, just a wide head.
    Looks like a sheet metal screw thread.

    All measurements rounded to 2 decimal points:

    OD (across threads):

    OD of head: 0.43"

    Thread length (grip): 0.49"
    I'm thinking we'll just call it half an inch:rolleyes:

    I used this end to measure the 0.49" grip:

    OVERALL LENGTH: 0.61"

      I ended up using a sheet metal screw and painted it black.
