    I know this is probably in the wrong place but I can't seem to find a place in the radicons section for questions. I'm trying to clean up a G1 Megtron and a lot of his original screws are rusted or starting to whiten. Does anyone know the screwxsize for the majority of his black screws and the place to purchse them? I'm not sure if a place like lowes or home depot has screws of that small size.

    Thanks in advance!!!

    You'll have a hell of a time finding them anywhere.

    Better idea - clean the old ones and repaint them.

    ^^ good advice ^^

    If you have a Dremel, try using a wire wheel attachment to clean them up. If not a small wire brush, or some fine sandpaper will take off any rust/corrosion.

    No problem. I have a dremel. I just figured they would be standard hobby screws of some kind and maybe a lot of G1s used the same style and size. Didn't know if pro customizers ordered them from somewhere in particular. Thanks for the advice! I'll do just that and save me some money!!!
