    Loosing my patience! :@

    Got new number plate LED's.

    Easy. old screws out. New LEDs in screws back in.

    Decided to buy some hex nuts for ease of removal in future so purchased 2 x M3 screws as directed.

    They won't screw into the lamp holder!!!!

    They fit through the hole of the light but they won't fit into the hole drilled in the car :@

    Yes okay lets put the screws back in .. oh whats that? I can't because i dropped them in the pissing rain and can't find them :@
