Just curious,how many would find interior/exterior screw packs very convenient and would buy them?My son is restoring a 1963 Falcon and he was able to buy both packs wit instructions on where iach type screw went.I wish there was a corvair vendor that did that.

Years ago I found a fellow on ebay selling them for the different Corvair models

Clark's also sells a lot of interior screws.

Interesting that someone would do that for Fords - or any car.

Seems way to expensive (labor) to make any money.

Plus, most screws (Corvair) have the caveat that they are not an exact match to stock, IIRC.


Maybe the Ford restorers are more serious - if that is possible.

Recall from the 80's when a brake / alignment shop owner decided to restore the 55 Thunderbird he bought his wife new.

He went to the local concours / talked to people who had restored Thunderbirds.

One anomaly that he found was that someone had determined that a 55 Thunderbird had two different types of screws attaching the door sill plates. One was used on one side of the assembly line; another on the other side. To satisfy the concours' judges, you had to have the correct screw on the correct side...

I'm pretty sure I'll never be satisfying those judges.

I'd buy them. Finding the correct screws is always a pain in the neck.

Since I am a little far from the average vendor, I bought a box of assorted stainless screws from Lowes on one trip, and a dozen of each of the probable other screws in stainless. They have a pretty good selection. On each trip I replace the ones I've used.

On the last trip I needed some small bolts for the Dauphine. No one could tell me if M4 or M5 thread, so I bought both. Still a cheap way to go.

I bought a pack for the Corvair and for the Camaro off eBay. I just replace the ones I come across that are damaged or rusted. I keep them in the garage since it is climate controlled.

I'm not sure that I'd buy them as my car is relatively complete. That said, I've been searching for the clips/screws that hold the upper cove trim on for years and can't seem to find them anywhere. It looks like Clark's just offers it with the actual trim (which I have, but it's only held on with 3 screws).

Might try Corvair Ranch or California Corvairs

Maybe Davemotohead has saved these pieces from LM Corvairs he has taken apart...

Neither will work.

Both will hit the rear panel - stopping the hood from closing.

The stock screw - which screws into the clip - has a small half round head.

Yeah, I gave it more thought today while at work and remembered that the trim on the deck lid is secured differently. It was probably the bottom trim I was thinking they would work on......sometimes getting old has it's disadvantages.confused smiley

Almost there... gggg

Hard to get a speed nut on a stud in an enclosed metal tube (rocker panel)...

Better for 50's / 60's cars for fender / door trim

What I meant by bottom trim was in reference to the lower cove molding that is accessible from inside the engine compartment. I guess I didn't make that clear enough even though we were (at least I think we were) discussing cove molding trim attachment. I guess it comes down to No Harm, No Foul, No Problem.winking smiley
