    I'm not with my detailing supplies, so I can't check for sure.

    That's probably correct, Kevin is always very accurate I his writing. Not that I'm not but sometimes I simply type faster than I think.


    Just walked out to the garage and looked at the stud on an LC DA Backing Plate and it is in fact fine thread.

    Can you help me out?

    Not sure what you're working on but if it's going to be a retail product the correct procedure to market it on this forum would be to first get it into the AG store and that process is to send your info to

    info@autogeek.net


    The information is then routed to the appropriate department and if there is any interest that department will contact you.

    It's 5/16-24 Thread and about 7/16" long.
    That's measured without the compression washer in place.

    I measured both a meguiars and a Lake Country backer, both were the same length.
