I'll be replacing the exterior lights on my '71 Safari this weekend. I went old school, with metal bases and bulbs. I have to say this site is so great, the information here is priceless.

I do have one question; what is the best size and type of stainless screw to use?

I used #8, 1 inch long. They seemed to fit the old rivet hole perfectly as long as you don't try and overtighten them.
