grille question....

The 4 grille mounting grommet nylon nuts... Where did you guys/gals buy them? I am drawing a blank. took the grille out to clean behind, they all broke and this is a mess..... Nobody stocks them, nothing local fits or works. Ebay sends from China. AUVECO stuff work? GM?

What year Grille are you talking about? Can you post a pic? Classic Parts has a lot of Grille parts, and Clips and Fasteners. But not knowing exactly what it is your needing, itís hard to say where to look.

Re: grille question....

Got them, have enough forever now. That was so irritating to look for and not find.

Probably Clips & Fasteners, they pretty much sell in bulk. Iím like that too, with several clips or bolts. I could only find them there, but you gotta buy a box of 50-100, lol.

I love that company. You do buy in bulk but their box price is generally close to what the big box auto part stores charge for a pack of 5.

Re: grille question....

Classic Parts of America has them, three different styles depending on the year of your truck.

Re: grille question....

Thanks for the replies everyone,,, I was able to buy a box at a local auto body/parts store.... So... I have 46 extras if anyone out there needs some.... AuVeCo bought out another manufacturer and they had a box on the shelf. Lot of calling around but they fit perfectly on the core support.
