what screw are used on closet,seats etc

hey guys

getting ready to get my boler back and have to put closet and seats etc back it....as every screw was rusted, what are the type/size of screws used on the boler

im scared of not getting the right ones and punching a hole through a brand new painted egg! Or when you guys put them back in did you just use like a pv adhesive?

any help would be great!

Later bolers similar to our 1984 do not have rivets or screws holding the interior in place but rather have the seats, kitchen unit and cupboards glassed in with a couple of strips of fiberglass tape. It makes a much stronger unit because now everything becomes one unit nad there are no holes through the body.

Be sure to use stainless if you use new screws. I just took my rusty UHaul ones to the hardware store and bought some new ones in blister packs #6 or #8 in the appropriate sizes and head shape (oval or flat).

Anything else will rust out again due to condensation.
