Finally Found: License Plate Screws!

I have finally found the correct screws for the Front and Rear License Plates
I was too far away from an MB Dealer to get some Freebies.

I found these at my very helpful Ace Hardware Store.

The Front License Plate uses a longer screw ( but I am sure you can use the shorter one )
Spec: M5(metric size 5) x 16 (mm length) x .80 pitch (thread pitch)

The Rear License Plate uses a shorter screw
Spec: M5(metric size 5) x 10 (mm length) x .80 pitch (thread pitch)

For 99 Cents I was able to purchase my necessary screws, install them at ACE Hardware Store and felt very content.

ACE is good with fasteners. Even we have one in our small city, I prefer to go to one on other side of the county.
Being close to marina Martinez ACE carries stainless steel bolts and believe me, the additional 20 cents will make huge difference over the years.
