Anyone have a source for the bell nut shaped retainers for 71 RR hoods? They're used on the outer engine callouts and the rear of the air grabber bubble. Tom@R/T specialties is out and Frank Baldalson is his source and has no supplier to replenish his inventory.... I need 4. Any input or help locating some would be appreciated! Can't find any pics of them anywhere... shruggy

Well....Mr. Matt, if you'd read ALL of it, then you'd know my dumba$$ can't find any to use as a reference!!!! Lol
Also, neither of those are what I need.... the ones I need are the weirdest washer nut combo I've ever seen. They go over the small "towers" that hold the studs and then the flat outer part of the washer presses against the hood itslef as you tighten it down... Only thing I've ever seen them used on are the hoods I mentioned.

Be very careful when fighting them down, remember that the fiberglass is 53 years old. I don't drive with my Grabber open at highway speeds cause I don't want the wind pressure pulling on them.
