69 Camaro upper fender bolts
« on: June 01, 2012, 05:50:19 AM »
Howdy Troops,
I need 2 correct upper fender bolts that have captured washers and are at least 1 1/4 to 1 3/8 in diameter, the larger size washer the better. The heads can be 9/16th or 3/8ths. The lower bolts are the originals but switching them out does not solve the problem, just reverses it.
When the car was factory painted the original bolt/washers were large and left a paint halo. When we repainted the car some how the original uppers disappeared probably when refinished and not returned to us so smaller diameter washer ones were used, the halos sticks out like a sore thumb. I want to cover the halo with larger diameter but correct bolts with thin washers. I have tried AMK, Heartbeat city and every other place I can think of to try to find correct head stamped captured larger diameter washer bolts but no luck...............any suggestions or if you have some old bolts available I would truly appreciate it. The washers are thin not thick ones and the bolts are spear tipped not flat end. Bolt part # is 3963329 and clearly shown in the AIM.  You can PM me off board to discuss if you like.  Appreciate any help you can lend and thanks for taking a few minutes to help us out.
Best Regards from the sunny beach in So Cal.

Not sure what you mean..
The correct 3963329 / AMK B-11720 has a 1-1/2" diameter washer. :)

Also, the lower 3839741 / AMK B-11964 bolts have 1-3/8" washers which you say is at least the size you need.  ???

Thanks for the info. issue with AMK is they require a 30 dollar minimun order I ONLY need 2 bolts, so what do i do with the other 25 dollars worth of bolts I don't need, I have plenty of fishing weights. This is the reason why I am looking for another source for these bolts unless someone needs some screws/bolts etc and we can split and order?
Cheers

LM69,

Give AMK a call,  they may sell you the small order that you need.  I have placed several small orders under $30. But I have spent a good amount of $ with them when I restored my car so AMK may have waved the $30 min order.

Download the amk catalog and browse through it.. You will easily find $30 of stuff you didn't know you needed.  :P
I've spend a couple of grand with them in the past five or so years. But then.. I do have a fastener fetish.  ;D
