Attaching a new soft top

Does anyone know the dimensions of the screws used to fasten the soft top to the header bar on a 1997 Wrangler? Are they stainless steel or some other concoction? Are the coarse thread sheet metal screws or fine thread. I've got a brand new top in my living room waiting to go on my Jeep --but someone lost the screws that fasten the top to the header bar. I called the company I bought the top from and they told me, "to a hardware store and buy some." The guy had no idea of what size the screws are.
Appreciate any help I can get.

All they do is screw into the plastic. Use what whatever will fit the holes or a touch longer to get a good bite if they are stripped out.
