I am putting replacement interior firewall insulation in
and the fasteners are giving me a problem.
The original ones are rubber and not reusable.
The new ones that came with the insulation are plastic
and don't want to go through the holes without smashing
or the screwdriver pushing through.
Please Help.

Have you checked with a GM dealer or the supplier of the insulation if the correct retainers are available?

First thing I'd do.

Thanks Joe,
I went to a body shop supply and found some
plastic push rivets that worked perfectly. The
dealer doesn't carry anything that old.

They may. You have to be persistent and ask them to look in the book for you, or do it yourself.

Most parts places told me the hinge parts for my mother's 1968 Magic Chef were obsolete. When I got my own parts book and looked up the parts, I found EVERYTHING I needed was available!

Moral of the story: Look it up yourself .
