I think he wants to know if the hood insulation retainer clips are the same for all 67-69 Camaros or did they change from year to year...Joe

Yes and thanks Niblet. I run into a guy that had metal square retainers and swore they were orig.
Had me questioning mine. The post above was a big help as the round with holes in the posts are what is still in place on this car. Verified my original thoughts.

I cant post one here but would be more than happy to forward you one from my phone. I know all the repo ones are round. Car still has the original hood insulation too, in rough shape but original.

The attached image as sent to me by troberts of his 'square retainers'...  Maybe he can elaborate on the number of them used, etc...?

And a related question would be ...  Is there a part number on this retainer on Troberts car?  He'd have to remove one of them to inspect the hidden surface for the part number.  He told me his car has 20 of them used to hold the insulation in place...

Does not appear to be a style that was generally found on the 1st gen hood insulation, all of us and all the cars we  have seen. I don't recognize them, certainly cars get serviced, painted or modified and aftermarket retainers 'could' have been sourced during the life of this particular car. Could be a Ford, AMC product or Mopar or aftermarket  decades old Au-Ve-Co, Dorman etc. They look sturdy and w/ steel construction. A internet image search really did not turn this style as a return. Not saying they have not been on this car as a recent add (*Looks Old) but while they look familiar, just not what has generally been accepted as original or stock restoration parts.

The 1968 AIM list the retainer under the L48 section A4, Part item 9 PN 3909199. The graphic drawing show a circle style

This is two that we have now seen with the square metal retainer. Both claimed to be original. So this raises my curiosity even more. Hope we can get some more helpful input.
