Steve - the photo below is typical of the 3847757-8; they're used all over the car; don't have a photo of the 7075.

John, if you see this post, would you please re-post the picture of the 3847757?  The link appears to be broken.

Thank you,

Scott

Here's the 3847757 - the original pic apparently disappeared back when the site was hacked.

When i got my car the original spoiler was gone but what remained was pieces of the plastic under six regular 5/16 head self tapping screws.  All the holes where the support braces would attach were untouched and still had paint in them so i knew i didnt have the second type larger spoiler and replaced it with the short textured one.  My car was in storage for 15 years prior to me getting it and was mostly original & unmolested with 58xxx showing on the speedo so i would guess those self tappers were original but i suppose the original owner could have added the spoiler.  Hope that helps and glad i found this place!!! :)

I'm with you, Chris. I think the self-tapping sheet metal screws are the right ones for the early '68 spoiler, not the machine screws and nuts. The few original examples I have seen (pretty hard to find) have had self-tappers.

My 07C '68 had the same scenario......when I got the car in 1972 the spoiler had already been torn off and there were pieces of the plastic under the screws.  The screws were hex head machine screws with hex nut/captive washers on the backside.  The holes in the valence were clean holes.....no signs of threads left by self tapping screws.

I hope this is the correct spot for this...here goes. Would an early build (10c) '69 Camaro have a '69 front spoiler or the second build '68 front spoiler.  I know the rear should be a '68 but I haven't been able to find any specific info regarding the front, such as "all '69 model year Camaros with the D80 option came with the '69 front spoiler regardless of production date".  Or are the late '68 and the '69 front spoiler the same?

Thanks.

All '69s built with D80 used the '69 front spoiler for the entire production run.

Thanks William.  That was the direction I was leaning.

Would anyone know the AMK numbers for the early 68 valence screws and captive nuts. I am taking these are the correct items for the early spoiler?  Thanks

Scoop,
Here is as close as your going to find in the AMK catalog, and I am comparing them to my original hardware.

     Screws - GM part # 9417075 (there is no equivalent number in the AMK catalog)
                   AMK # B-10411, Page # 115  (This screw is as close to my original as I could find...The only difference is that the AMK screw has no head markings and my original has a head marking of a N & L that is overstruck.)

     Nuts - GM part # 3759924  (There is an AMK equivalent)
               AMK # B-13507, Page# 51.

This hardware I am comparing to is from my 07C car.
