I just received my SBT90.2 kit and the mcpcb screw holes are too big for the original screws, what should I do?

Take care that the heads of the screws do not protrude from the surface of the centering gasket otherwise it will dent the reflector (it happened to a friend).

The 2 simplest options would be to either use a washer with the stock screws or get some screws with a larger head.

If you are in a real pinch sticking several layers of paper on the screw, trim to size and then screwing it in should work, Also should help center the screw as the paper gives.

Depending on how oversized the hole is this can work well or not at all, I have done this in the past on holes just slightly too large.

I’m only seeing the gt70 conversion on nealsgadgets and lumintoponline. Is the gt90 conversion still available?

Would not surprise me if it was not sold anymore.
