Default FLOOR PAN PLUG KIT missing screws, what to use?

I ordered from CJ and I just noticed there were no screws. Since it will take too long to get then in the mail and I need to get on them, what should I use, any good stainless or any from like LOWES?

I ordered the screws from them, but they were much smaller than the original ones. Do you want concourse correct or just close?

The build is not concourse, so I'll go close.

Did yours have the Phillips head screws originally? If so I would just go with hardware store screws. Mine were fatter than the new ones, but I went with the smaller new screws just in case they ever stripped out a hole I could go larger. I also used strip caulk to seal them.

The ones that come with the floor plugs aren't even close, anyway. IIRC, a pan-head Phillips #14x1/2 sheet-metal screw will be virtually concours.
