Default T-Maxx Fine or coarse thread screws..which to use?

Hi ..I bought my t-max 1.5, 2.5 and used and they had both been taken apart. I don't see much rhyme or reason to which threads go where. Im not so much worried about the lengths of the screws, because that seems a little more obvious...if there's a lot of meat, go meat, go short .

Metal to metal seems obvious, youll want to use fine threads.. There are a few more that are obvious...but, some things, like the bulkheads confuse top it off, when you look on ebay, the screws that come with some parts , like the small cross brace in the front come sometimes with fine thread screws and other times with coarse...Also, aftermarket parts dont seem to follow suit in thread usage..or do they

My eyes are not great to see in the holes..and at times, both types of screws seem to work.. but
knowing that plastic parts take a certain thread, or some rhyme or reason would help... any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.
