Spacers and panel gaps.

If your car has front panel gap problem this is usually why. These control the cowl to bonnet gap and also your guard to front door gap. These are used in all sorts of configuration's sometimes two on one side and one on the other. These cars are quite difficult to gap so be patient with the old girls. Remember always start to gap you car from the rear quarters it is the only way it can be done correctly.

Front panel bolts

This is a front panel bolt from a 12/1972 HQ SS Sydney car. The eight that secure the top of the front apron and lock panel are in silver zinc so to are the 2 securing the fenders to the cowling. (The six inside mounting to the pillar are silver Different bolt and washer) the rest are in grey black metal finish, I have noticed all Sydney cars I have are the same.
