Default A-Arm flap push-pins. Two needed

For whatever reason my new A-arm rubber flaps didn't come with new push-pins. I salvaged what I could from my originals but came up 2 pins short

Checked at NAPA etc for some replacements and they are all too large or too short to go through the fiberglass inner fenders

Anyone have two old ones in good shape they'd like to pass along? I know they're cheap for a new set but I don't need a full set and CC shipping can be a killer

They are the small plastic style with the fins to hold them in place.

Thanks in advance
M

I just realized there are 2 different sizes. The smaller is not only shorter in length but has a thinner shaft and smaller head.






Which would you like, wide or narrow?


EDIT: I will send all 4 to be safe.

I have a brand new full set of pins that you can have on one condition - the next time you order parts from somewhere, you replace them for me. There would be no rush to get the replacements.

Let me know if this works for you.

Thanks for the offer Bruce.

I think I've got a pair heading my way from a member out of Toronto.

I'm still not sure why I didn't either get new ones with the new flaps, worse than that I actually bought 2 sets (used one set to make gaskets for the frame extensions) and never bothered getting pins

I'll let you know if this falls through

Thanks to John, Bruce and Donnie for offering to help out with my pin shortage.

Received a tidy little envelope from new member TysonsBeak with 3 (a spare JIC ) to stop my flaps from flopping

Thanks again to all and especially Bobby
