71 - 74 b body console ?

hello all . i just got a console for my build and had to take it apart to clean it up and repair a couple broken peices . when i was taking it apart i noticed it was missing most of the screws and what was there didnt really look like original screws, most look like wood screws and a couple machine screws which may be original but who knows . is there anyone out there that sells the screws in a kit or what screws could i use to put it back together

I am pretty sure there will be no screw kits available for your console, so this will be kind of a common sense thing as far as replacing the screws.

thanks for answereing , i kinda figured that so i took a couple parts with me and found that there r 3 different sized screws in the console , its all together now and looks great . wish i had taken before and after pics , cause it was broken in two spots and a few of the mounting posts were broke off with the screws still in them. so a little jb weld packaging tape and plastic weld fixed all those problems and steel wool , sand paper, dish detergent and alcohol cleaned it up . wd40 got the latch lock working again and rust oleum paint for automotive plastic made it look like i just pulled it out of a box. if i can get my camera to work i will post an after pic of it. Its amazing what we can accomplish with what some would consider junk when we dont have the $ to buy the over priced after market stuff , mostly non fitting junk anyway.

i looked at those and i dont think they include the screws to put the comsole together , so i took some of the parts and opened a few screw packs and found the correct fitting screws . it took 23 screws of 3 different sizes . thanks for replying and looking for me . i checked like 10 different sites and nobody seems to have them
