Hi gang. Final stretch, fitting sun visors and rear view mirror, took them off so long ago, no idea where the screws are, and having fitted a new headlining, I can't judge the holes !! Size and length would be appreciated please !! Cheers

Is this the one? I've just taken one off my Coupe to check.

Both visor and mirror use the same screw. They're 3/16" UNF (32TPI), thread length 1/2", overall length 5/8".
👍

I can confirm in the se5a they are too UN fine thread. So no self cutting screws or the like :lol: or like one would anticipate on a scimitar 8)

What was really odd was that my brakedrums fitted with a metric screw....
