'63 convertible visor mount questions

I've got a 1963 Series 62 convertible.Anyone know the size of the three screws used to mount the Striker Support to the trim above the windshield? The "Striker Support" appears to be the name of the part that holds the visor and that the convertible top clamps to. Anyone have a source for a set of six of thee screws, or are they a standard size/type I pick up easily at a decent hardware store?Also, I feel stupid asking this question, but do the visor bushings go in the hole where the pivot is…See More

1963 Convertible Locks

The keys that came with the 1963 convertible I got in July don't match the door locks. I probably won't lock the car often (or ever) because I've heard too many stories of tops getting cut to steal a couple bucks worth of change. However, I live in fear that someone will lock me out of the car. Plus, I just want to have working locks. I think I can get replacements with keys cheaper than getting the lock re-keyed.I've read that there are short and longer lock cylinders and that they are not…See More
