Any industrial supply shop should be able to get the small socket-head cap
screws you're looking for. I have some nice little round head stainless ones
holding the fairing of my Kawasaki on. Looks cool.
I got them at Brafasco, no idea if they exist in the US, but look under
Fasteners in your yellow pages, there's bound to be something. 
A bonus is sometimes if you only need one or two they just say "take 'em", not
worth writing up a bill. Unfortunately if you need five or six, there's usually
a $10 minimum charge, depends on the mood of the guy behind the counter.
