So solution is.. go to 1.5mm sheets.. or add a small washer..
Hmm... Converting everything to decimal inches for convenience

.0394 - G10
.2500 - Standoff
.0394 - G10
-------
.3288

.375 - 2 x 3/16 Screw

.0462 - Difference

.0462 is just under 3/64" or 1.19mm. Switching to 1.5mm G10 would only add 1mm, so not enough.

My local Lowes (big box home center) sells nylon washers that are .033 thick. A pair of them or similar should give the needed clearance and an entire package of them weighs less than 2 grams. My scale isn't sensitive enough to weigh a single one.

Can't wait to get mine!
