    OK, I need one original clip for the baffle above the spoiler on my 70 GSX? One of mine decided to crack and I need a replacement. I know this is like looking for a needle in a haystack but I have to ask, does anyone have one they would sell???

    OK, back to the top. I know somebody has one stashed somewhere!!!

    Year One shows a bolt and clip kit for the front spoiler baffle for $15. The photo is not very detailed. I have two cars. One has clips like yours (they are GM, that I purchased in 1976), the other car has a different shaped clip, but does the job!

    Cool site. Thanks for posting. Maybe they could reproduce those if need be.

    Guys Thanks for the input. I will review the websites and if all else fails I will bend one. I think a piece of steel band strapping would work if I can get it to bend with out breaking.

    I am 99% sure I have an extra one that Duane reproduced for the 1970. Let me look this weekend.

    I owe you one. Thanks so much. I wish my yellow X would pull the wheels up off the ground like your white one does. Did I give you my name and address???

    Did you get them? I sent a spare too

    No, I have not received anything yet. I will let you know when they show up for sure. Are they USPS? My snail mail is slow and I have no clue why.

    Thanks Duane. I have faith they will make it, just not in a timely manner. I think the Pony Express ponies got tired on the way.

    Hi All,
    The Pony Express arrived to day with a package for me!!!!!! Only 8 days from New York to Illinois. I am sure glad we have made such improvements to the USPS being that this is 2020. Thanks Bob, alias Torqued455 for the clips and Duane for your offer to help.

    Thanks Jim

    I wonder if these from AMK would work. 20200505_161913.jpg

    Scott, I bet those would work too. Those look more like the clips that come with the reproduction front spoiler baffle.

    Jim, glad you finally got them. Those are some spares that I had that came directly from Duane.
