Hi,

I recently removed a non-factory spoiler lip in order to replace it with the original black plastic bumper under-covers.

But I need to order more of the speed nut fasteners that hold the screws in place.

They look like this:

Anyone know what size I need?

I replaced these, be careful as Porsche seemed to be REALLYYYYYY inconsistent with their screw and fastenings on the 964, every area of the car seems to use different sized kit when 1 size would have suited all.

When I had 'rebuilt' my 964, I used the parts diagram order system on the design 911 website to give me sizes and part numbers. Pretty helpful!

Thanks MarkGolf. I followed suit and, using the Design911 diagram, ordered all the correct fixings and new retaining strip from my local OPC (better price plus 10% PCGB discount):



Just put it all together this afternoon. Every old speed nut, washer and screw replaced with new:



A very satisfying little job (for obsessives like me!).
