    Timo raises some excellent points. My research with Dino's on their correct fasteners shows a number of trends but also some big differences between the early L and M series cars and the E series cars (that include all the GTS and USA spec vehicles). Compound this with cars being serviced over many decades and general Italian supply inconsistencies and you can at best discuss a guide of what is correct. Other marques literally have published manuals where every nut and bolt can be deemed correct based on supplier records. Ferrari in the 70's is NOT that kind of car so I caution anyone to take the contents of this thread as gospel.

    Very true and each person will have their own ideas thoughts etc which is why I initially said it will be a minefield. Common names in different countries don't always yield the same product either.

    I don't profess to be a expert on this, I could only document what was on my car at the time and examined those items to re-affirm if they were original or not. Some on my car had been replaced by odd screws etc but once you look closely, it does become clear what is or not original.

    Anyone know what is the correct screws for the front indicator lens - mine were just odd screws and believe they are chrome round head pozi

    I am sure you are right on the last point as well, cars made in the seventies were not the best especially the build quality of Ferrari's

    Best

    Well said Rob, I think the real answer is to get consistency in the fixings you use, odd fasteners will look out of place so if they all match then for me I would be content with the overall appearance.

    the door cards are a classic case of screws being added to the base because the snap fixings break

    I don't think anyone would notice but that style of cup washer isn't correct from what I've seen. It should be more of a flatter dished washer.

    The parts manuals are an excellent start for figuring out fasteners, and many fasteners are still available from Maranello by part number.
    There is a parts manual for each model Dino, and several manuals cover different ranges of S/N for the E-series with most of the changes in production documented.
    If you're that concerned about judging then following the parts manual for your model/SN might be the way to go and it's supposedly what Enzo intended...

    See post #23 again because your cheeze head screws are correct (changed during production)
    I can drag up a photo if you really want to see the earlier round head screws

    there is a difference between pozi drive and phillips - the star is different.
    I would be surprised if Ferrari used pozi drive back in that era.
    stand to be corrected.

    aside from the fact that Scaglietti (246 and Daytona and others) almost never used phillips
    Also stand to be corrected
