Looking for Replacement Screws for Underside of Case

I am looking for 2 replacement screws from my MacBook Pro 15" Unibody A1286 (2.4ghz). When I flip over my laptop, I am missing the 2 rightmost screws (toward side with charger, ethernet, and USB ports - NOT the CD/DVD-rom side) along the the edge where the screen hinges out.

Could you guys please help me identify exactly what I need? I saw that ifixit offers a complete screw set for my system, but at this point in time, I am only looking to replace my two missing screws.

It looks like you need one 5.4mm and one 3.5mm screw from step #4 on this guide:

MacBook Pro 15" Unibody Late 2008 and Early 2009 Logic Board Replacement

Unfortunately the guide only has the length of the screw and not the diameter. Hardware stores will not sell these custom lengths they will only be available in 6mm and 4mm but they can work just as good. If you live in the USA Ace Hardware will have small metric screws, they will not be perfect matches but they will do the job. They will probably be sizes M3 M2.5 or M2 then just look for the appropriate lengths like 6mm and 4mm
