Hi There

Can anyone give me an answer on the fasteners used on 1968 early design spoliers. My originals were;

1. rearmost; acorn nut 1/4 NC  0.500" tall
2. innermost to car; hex nut 1/4 NC with captive toothed washer  I have a mix 1 pair is 3/4" washer the others 9/16" washer, both are cad dichromate plated.

What of this is correct for 1968?

Cheers

Chris -

If you go to this CRG thread...  http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=954.0

Look at JohnZ's photo (reply #1).  My 02C '68 Z/28 has the same fasteners in the same place as his car.

Here's JohnZ's quote...  "My unmolested original 02D Norwood Z/28 with factory D80 has domed "acorn" nuts across the rear, and hex nuts with integral conical washers across the front."

Chris, I don't want to remove my keps nuts to measure the washers as I don't want to disturb the factory sealer under them.  I measured them on the car with a compass caliper and came up with 23/32" (width of washer).  Hope this helps...   Smiley

Has been discussed quite a bit, and it seems as though the change from the keps/acorns to all keps roughly correlated with the time of the short spoiler phase/run out.

edit: didn't realize this was a 68 discussion.  What I posted is for '69.  Lips Sealed

No worries!  Anyone got a good side view pic of a original acorn nut?

One of my pit crew racing buddies, Mike Williams has two survivor '68 Camaros with OEM spoillers, I know they're acorn nuts but I will get him to take photos.  Both of my survivor cars do not have spoilers.

Yup, those are the same as on my car!

Chris, now you can see what I meant sealer-wise from JohnZ's second photo.     Smiley
