Got an idea from a post on this site wondering if there was a Photo Reference Library. I think there should be and as such I will begin what I hope will be a long running and valuable thread.

In the interest of space, specifically for those trying to search the thread, I’d prefer to keep the chat to a minimum. If you have a photo of a bona-fide original fastener or component, or maybe even an array of components in their original setting and factory configuration, let’s see them. Ideally, we would show a photo of the location and then a photo of the specific component. I don’t have site editing capabilities nor am I sure I really want to be that particular. I just know that on numerous occasions throughout my build process, I have sought out what the original fasteners looked like and what the original orientation of components looked like. Hopefully this will help some of us with less than perfect memory. …

Keep in mind that General Motors had and has numerous suppliers making the same hardware and components. This is why you will see slight variations to the hardware, more specifically, the head markings. It’s not uncommon to find numerous different head markings on the hardware from a single vehicle. One nearly empty box gets emptied into the next box and so on.

There are also build variations from plant to plant. Usually they’re subtle enough that no one ever notices however they can and will be found on vehicles manufactured in different plants. Anyone that thinks otherwise has never worked in an automobile assembly plant.

It’s not as common these days but back when these cars were built, keeping the line moving was the number one assignment for management. This is why you will find morphidite variations of option content with no real explanation of why or what for.

The reason I've stated all the above is because I don't want this to turn into a pissing contest of who's right or wrong between high testosterone individuals. If there's a glaring error, send me, or whomever posted the error a PM so we can resolve it. Lets try to argue about it on a different post. ...

Hardtop vs. Vinyl window pics

How about someone posting vinyl and non-vinyl Cutty windows along with the vinyl and non vinyl rear window pieces as they look removed from the car. Is the rubber seal/trim for the non viny actually part of the window or is it a separate seal that can be added to a vinyl window? Also, what is a fair price to pay salvage quality for each of these pieces?

Genius thread, helped refresh my mind after a year since disassembly!

Agreed, an asset for those of us who are 'organizationally challenged'.




Now, how does all that sh*t go back in again? :lol:

Spacer and shims?
No wonder mine are so loose in there. I bought mine from someone and I didn't get the shims.
Do you know the part number for them?
