How Many Camaro5 members does it take to change tighten spoiler nuts

  • 1 to tighten the nuts and to post that the nuts have been tightened
  • 14 to share similar experiences of having to tighten the nuts and how different type of nuts should have been used
  • 2 will post photos and 21 to ask to see photos afterwards
  • 7 to caution about the dangers of over-tightening the nuts and 1 to move it to the Camaro Problems section
  • 2 to argue then move it to the DYI section
  • 17 will multi-quote posts with photos and making you scroll for 10 minutes to see the next post
  • 7 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about tightening nuts
  • 5 to flame the spell checkers
  • 3 to correct spelling/grammar flames
  • 6 to argue over whether it's "nylock" or "nyloc" ... another 6 to condemn those 6 as stupid
  • 2 industry professionals to inform the group that the proper term is "nylock"
  • 15 know-it-alls who claim they were in the industry, and that "nyloc" is perfectly correct
  • 3 contributes nothing to the topic but feels the need to say "your dealer is an idiot!"
  • 19 to post that this forum is not about nuts and to please take this discussion to another section of the forum
  • 11 to defend the posting to this forum saying that we all need to tighten the nuts and therefore the posts are relevant to this forum
  • 36 to debate which nuts are superior, where to buy the best nuts, what color of loc-tite work best and what metal is non-magnetic
  • 7 to post URL's where one can see examples of different locations of nuts
  • 4 to post that the URL's were posted incorrectly and then post the corrected URL's
  • 3 to post about links they found from the URL's that are relevant to this group which makes nuts relevant to this group
  • 13 to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety including all headers and signatures, and add "Me too"
  • 9 to say nothing else but or or or
  • 5 to post to the group that they will no longer post because they cannot handle the nuts controversy
  • 4 to say "didn't we go through this already a short time ago?"
  • 13 to say "USE THE SEARCH"
  • 8 to say nothing else but
  • 13 to say "do a Google search on nuts before posting questions about nuts
  • 1 forum lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start it all over again.

Theres the very old joke (50+ years) about all the new Pontiacs being recalled by G.M..: The factory forgot to tighten the nuts on the indian. LOL.
For you young guys- Pontiacs had indian head hood ornaments in the 50's.

That's great! Ls1.com did one of these like 8 years ago. You forgot the 7 who would say it's not fair that they don't have the car yet & that someone else got to tighten the nuts on their wheels before they got theirs.
