Put the decals on last night, just something about the decals, it changes the look of the bars.

If you want to be extra correct the original nuts on the hardware for Lakewood bars were black phosphate.

Anybody recognize these? They seem kinda small. The only labeling I see is a "Patent Pending" sticker.

Just finished restoring the Lakewood bars for my Nova. They turned out nice as did the original hardware which I had to strip a few coats of paint off to clean it up. Bars are mounted back onto the car now and look great. I used T-bolts on the front holes and the original J-bars in the back two holes.


T-Bolts and Lock Nuts used for the front 2 mounting holes on main spring pad.


Bars completely restored with original hardware cleaned up and threads chased.


Loosely installing the bars before loading weight back onto the suspension


Both bars are reinstalled with wheels and tires back onto the car. Minor adjustments will be needed once the car is completely loaded down with weight.


The finished look after reinstalling the Lakewoods. The newer water slide decals are a nice finishing touch.

I'm replacing the yellow Lakewoods with the black J-Bolt ones. My black ones look a little different than all the others that have the extension going out behind the axle. Also, mine have a different plate welded on for the front j-bolts. Are these any better or worse performance wise? I don't have anything on it right now and I'm sick of the wheel hop and having to get out of it... Once I weld a new shock mount on for the driver side I'll paint them and get them on there.

edit: Looks like they're Competition Engineering
