    Hey fellas, well the car is a 1987 El Camino. I bought it with the gauge cluster bolted on but everything after the actual open gauges was off. It's all there but I don't have any screws or bolts to put the clear plastic back on or the headlight switch or the final trim overlay. Where can I find these fittings from? Thanks fellas

    Most GM trim screws are the same 7mm or 9/32" hex heads with varying size washers and overall length. Just find one, and start pulling screws.

    I've built and sold several Chevy clusters, I have a plastic "cabinet " thing I keep all my cluster parts in. I'm sure I've got everything you need. I can post some pics in a bit.

    Yeah, I might have some extras in my garage. Figure out what you need. I think the screws that hold the clear lens in are different than the rest.
