What are the correct shims for adjusting the Rally Sport headlight assembly's? There was a Camaro at the Nationals last year that got charged points for using a body shim for the assembly.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks, Scoop

67AIM Z22 B5 #2 3903452 Do not have a picture of one but the shim is for a 5/16 screw. AMK does not produce them.
Should not be hard to make using the picture if you need them.

My car is a 68 so I dont't have the 67 manual and cannot find a picture in my 68 Assembly manual. Would it be possible to post a picture? Would these be phosphate finished?  Thanks for the reply, Scoop

Scoop,
I would think they are phosphate as other body shims have that finish.

OK I looked in my AIM and if the shim you're looking for is #5 above, it looks like the shims that are used for alignment on the upper control arm but it is not the same part #.  I can't find that part # any where else, but I haven't looked that hard.  I looked at AMK and they don't have that part #.  The shims they have are on page 186 of their catalog and looked to be metal colored.  The part # you're looking for is 3903452.

Scoop,

I am probably the person you were referring to that got the points taken off at last year's Nationals for the wrong RS headlamp shims.  Well, I found the correct shim (see photo below) and showed it to a Legends Judge along with illustration #5 depicted on Page Z22/A7 of the 68 AIM.  It is not the same shim as those used for alignments.  The alignment shims are silver-colored and have a square-shaped tab.  The judge did say that the RS headlamp shim should be dark phosphate, just like the body shims.  Therefore, the plating in the photo below is incorrect.  I happen to have 8 phosphated shims for my car and 22 extra (unplated, raw steel) ones that I could sell for $10.00 each, plus S&H, if you or anyone else is interested.
