I really doubt there are any junkyard Fieros left with the black grill screws still available. Where can I get one? - I don't care whether the slotted head screw or the flip-up thumb turn head screw. Don't laugh.

I am not sure if this screw was metal, but when I drop stuff I always use a magnetic wand that you can get at pretty much any auto store. Just probe around a bit. Who knows, you might something you did not expect. Maybe JimmyHoffa or something....

If you ever have a questions about the sincerity of the circle of Fiero owners on this site, take a look at:

Pretty impressive.....

I bet you could find a 'close enough' replacement of the non flip style at a place like fastenal.

Hmmm sounds like something i need to figure out how to make

Try www.dormanproducts.com ---- look under "exterior". Most part stores stock some of the most popular dorman / motormite body trim screws. You may also want to carry one into a large body shop in your area to see if they have one in their extensive hardware bins.

I was working on my wifes Grand Prix the other day and dropped my 13mm deep socket into nevergetbackland. I looked underneath and felt around and tried the old magnet thing but finally gave up. After test driving the car when I had finished I went out for a walk and found the socket on the road about a block from home.
