68 rear spoiler stud lenth needed
« on: May 25, 2013, 07:08:11 PM »
Can some one tell me if the four long rear spoiler studs on a 68 ( the ones that are on the forward edge of the spoiler ) all stick out the same length of if the two in the middle should stick out longer.

I only have one of the original four longs studs left in it's original position. That is one on the end and it sticks out one inch. Of the two in the middle, one is gone and the other is the original factory stud but I had to reset it more than 20 years ago. That one is sticking out an inch and a half. It's been too long for me to remember why I did it that way. I don't remember if I was trying to match the original length or that just how I happened to set it.

Anyhow, I am going to be replacing the missing studs and want to set them at the correct lenth.

Thanks......Dave

Mine is still mounted - hard to tell from that, but I'll ask a friend who should have a NOS piece to compare it to.

By the way, is that British Racing Green on the bottom of the spoiler ? Looks familiar -

Yes it does. That's exactly what I needed to know......and what I thought it should be.
