Grill and Fender Mounting Clips

http://s913.photobucket.com/user/montego_gto/library/


Hi all,

I'm looking for a source for the the clips that mount the grill assembly to the front splash apron. I know i can use "U" clips but they're not the same because they hold the panels apart a bit. Anyone know of a good source? Stainless would be cool but not necessary.

I'm also in need of those studs-mounted-to-a-sheetmetal-piece that fit into a slot on the inside, rear portion of the front fender. They bolt the fender to the cowl. The nuts are spun onto the stud from inside the truck. Is there a suitable replacement that you guys have used?

Thanks all,

Nick in WI

Hi all,

Maybe my post isn't clear enough. I added a picture of the clip that's currently a show-stopper...

Thanks Wally for the help. I'll be going to the salvage yard tomorrow to pull some fenders...

Here's another clip - mainly used to attach the grill and valance panel. Does anyone have a source for these too?

Above is what i found on McMaster just now. The picture looks like they're correct. I'm ordering them in and reassembling the front end.
Everyone have a good weekend,
