Hey Rob. 

I'm not positive on the return edge size, but I'd think 5-6 mm would be good. There is a great picture in the CRL thread in the PO section of the forum.  Just measured screws in the kit I got from Trooper Bay, they are about 4 mm across. As for a backing plate I've heard people are using thin ABS strips and ABS paste to reenforce the return edge. Good luck with your replacement
