Wavy Washers

Hello Everyone. The bumpers came off my '65 coupe for a new paint job this week. Now I have the task of bolting and fastening all the removed parts back on. I cannot remember how the wavy washers go on. Thanks

He's right- Here they show the cupped side of the washer toward the head of the bolt-


Amateur restorer. Well, sometimes I have been paid for it. But not right now.

You would think it would be an easy task installing all the stuff back on the coupe after a paint job. (just spin a nut on a bolt), but it fights you all the way. I'm almost done! Thanks

I don't know if you've installed the bumpers yet, but if not, put some cotton socks(2 on each end) over the end of the bumper to keep from scratching your new paint with the bumpers. I learned this trick a long time ago when i "scratched" my new paint,,,it really helps the installation, also try to have someone help you....Rich

Fight? The brackets should be installed on the bumper before the bumper is installed. Real easy, spin on with your fingers, as you say.
