Rich,
Yeah, real measurements with calipers!

Those pics you posted are fine.
Are there any markings on the top of the caps? The ones I saw had a single digit, IIRC.

Kurt-

I'll take another look, but I don't believe the caps on my car are marked at all.  Not sure of the material either - clearly wan't rubber, kind of a fibrous material.  See two pics below withouth the calipers.

Cool, Thats just what I was looking for. Its pretty obvious to me that the picture I started this conversation with of  the set that was sold on ebay and the set that I own, are not the correct caps. Someone bought those on ebay for big money considering what they are and then are not correct.  Now I'll have to find a set. Are the caps the same for the 3 screws holding the bracket to the inner fender as the ones you show installed on the bracket in the first two picture's. It does look to me that yours are plastic but Rich's look to be of a differant material. Differant suppliers?  I know some may think this is a small insignificant issue, but I enjoy it.

Thanks

The original Part Number of 3866096, that was in the ebay auction, is in my P&A 34 as:

Group 10.154

67 Chevelle - CAP, washer jar (protective)

And you needed 2 of them...

Has it been concluded the screw caps are specific to 69? I don't see any mention in the 68 AIM. ???

I made a set of the wiper bottle screw caps... they are not quite perfect but much better than the reproductions... This was the first set and I learned from the process and believe that the next set will be much better.
