    Just spotted these on ebay if anyone is interested. Someone is finally selling them!

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/222379193136

    Dome heads, perfect for old Marshall restores, and in stainless steel instead of zinc plated. The same seller also has the matching cup washers.

    Not sure how long these have been available, but I spent many a few hours searching for them only a year or two back. They just didn't exist until recently as far as I know.

    If its a 4x12, you will want the 2" length for the speaker baffle, and the 1.75" length for the back panel.

    On MY '77-8ish cab, EVERY screw was a flat head. My '76 cab as well, both baffle and back panel.

    When were the dome heads historically used?

    They swapped to the flat head screws around mid 1970. So it's only the very vintage stuff, basketweave cabs and earlier.

    Hey, I know I'm going a little OT here but do you guys know if the screws that hold the chassis to the cab on an 81 4104 would be hard to find.
    I admit, I haven't looked yet. Thought I'd save myself a little time and ask here.
    Thanks!! :cheers:
