    Hi,

    in case somebody still looking for replacement of original standoff's,
    is possible to replace them with standard metric screws and nuts.
    Isn't my idea, can't find original Thread so I did a simple sketch.

    The Apple standoff screws are metric M3 x 0.5 and can be sourced from McMaster Carr.

    A example page is: https://www.mcmaster.com/#standard-rounded-head-screws/=19alasf

    This is in the US, and I would think in Europe you would fine these in you local hardware store.

    Goos modding,
