If you still have one, take it to your local NAPA store. Otherwise, try the dealership.

CarQuest stores often also have the fasteners as "shop supplies"

...a GM dealer is a **very** good bet for this one - they don't charge themselves all that much $$ for miscellaneous fasteners. You may even luck up and the dealer's body shop may have some "around"

...another good way - get them from behind similar trim off any car at the local "pick n pull" wrecking yard...

Yeah, but be up front about it and pay for them. He can get them at a decent price and the stuff's not all that dear. Not worth your integrity for a bowl of soup so to speak. Give uncle a list, sure, but at the same time ask him for the bill.

I feel for your man. Glad you have a hook up for the fasteners.

The last time I went to an automated car wash it took half of the Riviera name plate on the drivers side! Argh!

What makes things ironic is this is supposed to be one of those "touchless" car washes.
