    1980 fascia to rad core. Does anyone happen to know the metric pitch and size of the 4 bolts that anchor the fascia to the rad support?

    Thanks.

    10-4

    thanks for the reply. Mine will be metric as the car was built in Canada for the Canadian market. But it gets me in the ball park.

    cars built for the Canadian market all use metric fasteners.

    There are quite a few metric fasteners on 80 Camaros. I doubt it matters where the were shipped to.

    built where?

    Oshawa I guess, I don't know, where else did the have assembly plants in Ontario?. I suppose I could check the VIN and find out exactly but that's not going to move me ahead on my current challenge.

    Don't look too hard, I suspect you'll only find Norwood or Van Nuys. http://www.nastyz28.com/camaro/camaro80.html


    I think you ought to try the 5/16-18 sae mentioned above.

    These are the bolts in the headlight area? I have an 81Z rad support I can go check for you if you want.
