Wellnuts for rear Shade...

Hello all,

I am new to this forum so please excuse me if this has been asked and answered. I am finishing a restore on a
1980 Corvette. The problem I am having is trying to locate the wellnuts that hold the rear shade onto the
body. These are the little rubber bushing with thread on the inside. I have looked all over and called a few hundered Corvette shops and am having no luck. I located some on the web out of Canada, but they want a $100.00 min order. If anyone knows where to get these please drop me a line...OR if you have a way to
attach this shade I am open to any and all suggestions. I would just put a bolt and nut and bushing, but I cannot get my arm up to the hole...

Thanks in Advance,
Nutinelse2do (aka RJ )

well nuts

Welcome Nutin,

When I was in GM parts, years ago, well nuts were a parts dept staple as they are used all over on all lines of GM cars and trucks. Have you been to your Chevy dealer?

I hope they still stock them like they used to. There were more than one size as they even used them on Shark luggage racks.
