Default Wind Wings phillips head screws

Just installed a pair of wind wings on my 30 CCPU (I know....it didn't come that way). They look great except for the phillips head sheet metal screws that came with the kit. Have looked for slotted screws that will fit the wind wings, but to no avail. Does anyone know of a source for countersunk slotted oval head sheet metal screws? I think they are #6's or #8s.

Thanks Guys, I spend another hour web searching after I posted this thread and found just what I needed at the Bolt Depot (boltdepot.com). You can order any size and any quantity. Shipping is a little high for a dozen screws, but "it is what it is". And they take paypal. Thanks again for the replies.

Im lucky I guess. I worked for the phone company and all our components came with slotted bolts. The old bolts ended up in the bottom of my tool bag as we used the new bolts were used on the new parts. After I retired I emptied my tool bag and sorted all the slotted screws into parts bins. I have a lot of them now.
