Need vintage radio mounting nuts

Anybody know where to find these nuts that hold the radio to the dash. They are a special thread size. Radio shack does not have them any longer. Found some on the net but cost $8 for 2. I need six and hate to pay those prices. With freight they would be $40.
Any ideas?

Welcome to the site John.
The 67 radio is held to the dash by two screws. I am sure the radio has the mount built on to the radio.
What I am saying is I don't understand the question.

I think he may be looking for the nuts to hold the dash plate on the radio shafves.
He can buy a potentimeter at most any electrical part store and use the locknuts from the pot, or check the elec store Help aisle.

Re: Need vintage radio mounting nuts

Thanks guys. I need the nuts that hold the volume and station pots in place before you mount the radio. This radio is vintage and works. It's am only and does not have push button station selection. I plan to wire this to the front speaker. Then I plan to mount a remote controlled modern radio in the trunk and wire it to the two rear speakers. These are not the same size as today's modern electronic pots so not easy to find.

You might look into www.hemmings.com for a radio repair shop and ask them.
