Default Aluminum screws.

Hey everyone, I want to get some aluminum screws for some of my cars, mainly my Tamiya collection. I've got some from Fastener Express in the past, and while I can't complain about the service or the parts that I got, they just don't have the colour that I'm after, Tamiya blue. The blue that they have is closer to associated blue.

So after all that, can anyone recommend somewhere to get some screws from, already anodised in something very close to Tamiya blue.

Thanks
Daniel

Yeah I've used fastener express before, as I said in the first post. I bought a whole lot of screws from them before and they just don't do the colour range that I'm after. I've asked them and they said that they don't do a "Tamiya" blue. The pics on their site aren't a good reflection of the blue anodising that they do. There's nothing wrong with the quality of their work, just not what I was after. Oh, and yes they do ship internationally, well at least to Australia.
