    I have a 1975 Camaro need hole spring clips and bolts for my front fenders, and lower valance. Any one know what size bolts for each or just one ? I took my lower valance off and the clips broke. The fenders will need new ones also. Anybody know size and good quality parts for each ?

    This is one of the parts where you are best off checking your local hardware stores and auto repair parts stores for new ones. Just take along one of the old broken ones and buy new ones that are similar.

    Usually any bolts that hold the sheet metal together are 5/16" from the cowl forward.The some that go into the cowl upsize to 3/8".
    Lowes stocks clips,but they arent the correct ones,theyre more just plain and flat if I recall.

    I buy most of my hardware from AMK products. They have most anything and the quality of the reproduction is very good. However they have a minimum order of $35.00 or so but it doesn't take long to get to that level.

    Thanks everyone , yes you want quality parts . I did buy some my interior and it was an interior clip and screws and bolts , the screws and clips seem to be brittle and snap easy. Nothing like the awesome quality USA made parts. I will check these places out thanks guys , y 'all have a awesome day . And thanks lets keep those second generations going strong.
