    So somehow I managed to lose/throw out my plate mounting screws. The ones I bought from an auto parts
    store are far too large. Does anyone know offhand what the rear plate mounting screw size is?

    I replaced mine with stainless steel security screws size 10x1/2" made by Hillman. Lowes carries them in their parts drawer in the hardware section. You will need the special driver head to attach them. The non-security screws I would think would be the same size.

    I've found the heads of the Tesla screws to be too small, and they slip through the holes on Illinois plates unless positioned near-perfectly.
