    I think if that were mine I would be looking to buy a better front lip from a tried and tested company.
    I am sure there are members on here that can advise who to and not to buy from.
    The fact that the one you have has been supplied with what looks like the wrong fitting kit would raise concern over the product quality and fit.
    Could you send it back?

    They look like roofing screws to me.

    One problem you might have now regarding different screws is the hole diameter these f*ckers have created. Also, I doubt that they need to be as long as that. Without knowing the dia. of the screws you have, go to the Screwfix website and type in item no. 7483H. Might be a possibility.

    If you do need them longer, have a look on the Toolstation website at item no. 74683 and 75878.
