What size screw hold the bezel in place. Looked at Mike B's how to spot an early one page, but I can't make out if they're 8's or 10's.

I was looking at 10s cos the holes are a bit worn, and I think 6s would pull through. But 8s seem to work.

No, I mean the painted black outer surround for both headlamps. I think the part numbs are 817389 and 817388, but I aren't certain.
