As the subject says... The dark gray / black caps that cover the tail light screws.
They are in the panel above the tail lights.
I need at least one, but wouldn't mind having a spare or three.
(I had a taillight screw that was not threaded properly, and backed out, knocking the plug out.)

Thanks!
Steve

I have a few.
I went to a prayer meeting and a ball game broke out.

Cool. Thank you sir. How much?
Just bring them to the next meeting if you don't mind.

How about a handshake?  Whatever you find in your hand when you pull it back, you can keep. 


Better email or call me before the meeting to remind me.

I grabbed one of the caps from the 86SE as Randy and Scott hauled it away this morning.  I didn't realize you wanted more than 1.  The ones I have were in a bucket of nuts and bolts and screws that I got in a package deal.  Slightly scuffed and scratched up.  Email or pm Randy and have him pull the rest and bring them to the meeting.  I couldn't find them listed in the pullapart price guide, so I guess there're free.

Thanks guys.
All I really need is one. Just wanted a couple to have as spares, in case my taillight screws decide to do the dance again.
No hurry. I should be at the next meeting.

Do these screws come loose?

I'm considering making better heads on these.  Perhaps hex.

I'm also wondering if anyone has found a good source for the covers, before I refinish mine.

Thanks for the offer, but I'm looking for new.  Mine are fine, if used, but I keep thinking....

Not normally.
One of my tail lights had a broken plastic piece, where the "spring nuts" (for lack of a better description) are fastened.
Made it hard to thread the screw into the nut. (Usually it would miss.)
Allowed the screw to vibrate and back itself out.

Thanks Dewey. I think I'm good, now.
I appreciate it.
