Title: Rear interior panel trim screws.
Post by: manyc on November 06, 2019, 08:31:33 PM
When I got my 67 RS/SS Conv the interior had been gutted since it spent most of its life as a drag car. The original rear interior trim panels (aka armrest panels) were long gone, but the trim screws were left installed. The screws that were there are not the kind I am used to seeing.  They were the ones on the right in the picture below.  I am used to seeing them with chrome washers with a wave on them like the ones on the left.
Are they supposed to be like the ones on the right or the left for my Norwood 06C convertible ? 

Note: The other pictures show where I found them.  I only have 6.

any insight ?

thanks
Chris

 I just checked my 67 05B NOR convertible and the one pictured on the left is correct.

I agree the one on the left is correct..thatís looks like the original ones on my 67 convertible.

Ok, I'll buy that as my 69 Firebird Conv also has the ones on the left.  That doesn't really explain how I ended up with 6 of the other ones on my 67 Camaro.

I seem to recall that when I restored my 69 Firebird 20+ years ago that the screws in the back bottom corners obscured by the seats where different than the others. more like the ones on the right.  Of course I replaced all of the screws back then, so no hopes of verifying my memory in that regard.

The picture below indicates the area that I am referring to. 

Thanks for your replies to my post.

Could be. And you can use them there and noone will notice. :)
But I'd expect that on a panel like that, all the screws installed at the same time would look the same.
