They are different (thinner) to the 60's style screws ..

The early Hella ones are easy to find its the early Bosch that are impossible, they always break and are the thinnest pesky ones of them all!

its these (but less bent and longer) for a '53 Bosch headlight.. need 2 minimum, but 3 or 4 would be good! I think they are about 55mm long?
