I looked in my Machinery's Handbook and, for what it's worth, there is a standard for the screws that you want in a slot-head configuration. They are called...are you ready? "American National Standard Slotted Oval Countersunk Head Machine Screws" (ANSI B18.6.3-1972, R1977). The handbook showed nothing for the same screw in a socket head configuration...

Never seen the two in a hex drive. Even flatheads in a hex drive are not a favorite thing to use, they often end up stripping the hex out if/when you go to take them out. (A centre punch at the outside edge will sometimes help break them loose.)

If you use stainless be sure to put antisieze on them, or they’ll never come apart.

Them seizing is a major concern and something I have been thinking about. I don’t want a steel bolt to rust and make it look crappy. I’m not a fan of the blue grey color of zink for this application. Stainless is the look I want though. I’m using acorn nuts on these so I guess a dab of anti-seize will help. These bolts will go on and won’t come off unless there is a major need to remove the doors. Luckily I changed things up with this dog trailer that rather than using rivets to hold the doors on, I’m using bolts. There will be room to grind the acorn nuts off if need be.
As always thanks everyone for your help!

That’s a standard flat head. He’s looking for oval head, hex drive, in stainless steel.

Likely the only way to get that is to forgo the hex drive and look at phillips drive oval head machine screws.

I would have bet money we would have had it. We have more stainless fasteners than I've seen in a long time in one spot, but no, we didn't.
