The screw has a pointed tip so that would match the use of a u-nut.

Lane....If you get some good photos of the hardware you want then you can probably find it in the AMK catalog.  BTW...are you trying to get your hardware matched to those certain dates for show car purposes?  If so, then maybe a call to some of the judges might put you on the right track.

Found out why the links didn't work.....I accidentally moved my photos over to another section of Google (I thought I copied them but instead I moved them) after I posted the links here.  I will correct all my boo boos tomorrow.

Lane.....Been doing some looking today and found a 03D car with a couple of photos that show something.

     This photo shows that the #6 screw and #8 nut, shown on the AIM, were only used on the two end holes.  If you look at the left side of the photo you can see the left side of the grille setting on top of a U-Nut (#8) that is attached to the valence panel....this is where the screw (#6) is inserted.  Then you can look toward the center of the photo and see the heads of two screws that are attaching the grille to the valence.....but you can't see the nuts underneath.  Apparently these are the screws and nuts you are in question about and they don't show up anywhere on the AIM, that I can find anyway.

    

     This photo is a closer view of the two screws....looks to me that they are phillips head screws of some type.

    

This is all I have found today...maybe some one else will see this and take a photo of the nuts underneath.  But this could also be a collision repair.....don't know for sure.

BTW.....we need to give Lucas Restorations credit for these photos.  If you want to see the whole gallery of the restoration of this car then go to this link.  Look for Jay's 68  SS-RS (1), (2), (3), & (4)  Well, if you want, you can look at all of them.

Just for comparison, here is a photo of a 05A car using what appears to me to be U-Nut and screw arrangement.  Looks to me that the setup shown is using smaller screws and U-Nuts than the two end holes.

I looked closer at my screws and they were a different part number, 3419303! Sorry.

I have a 68 but it's not an RS. I gathered lots of fasteners for my restoration.
