  4. 65 Chevy II Nova Hood Spear

    I notice all the repop hood spears for 1st generation list 1962-1964. Does 1965 have a unique spear? Is it longer? Different shape? My original 65 spear has 6 attachment points and seems to look like the repop. Unfortunately the chrome though not pitting, does not look so good. Thanks in advance...

    Has anyone repaired/replaced the mounting studs on their Trunk Diecast? I have 3 studs that are broken off with about 1/4" remaining. Are these studs screwed in or cast with the rest of the part? My 1965 Diecast is good otherwise. I suppose I could use 3M mounting tape if there is no other...
