do you know what the part is called that the 8 taper head phillips screws into I'm missing that also. On my car I only have one on the right side and it's a little plastic box about a half inch long and that 8 taper head phillips screws into it. The little plastic piece goes into a square hole on the frame next to the head light haha dont know y I'm having such a problem with this, thanks for the help

Not sure if you mean the bucket adjustment screws with plastic insert or the screws for the grill bezel surrounds at the headlights (?).  The adjustment ones are available with the plastic insert:

I reconditioned them on my '69 Torino.  
Here's where they mount:



Here is the grill screw (4 per side), not sure on a source for these as I only needed one and a guy from another site had one

its the headlight bezel that attaches to the grill. The bezel has a clip up top that slides behind the grill and the bottom is held on by a screw/nylon nut. The bezel hole is  3/16 but the nylon nut that sticks out that the screw goes into has a hole that 1/4 wide. I'm not sure if that hole is stripped or what. I also need that nylon nut. Is that the link you put up or is that for the light ajustment set screw? I would put up a pic but am not sure how to. I'm still figuring this forum out. Think I'm still to new to it to put anything up

I see from your other post you have a '68.  Those had 1 piece grille and the '69 had a 3 piece, so previous reply not much help.  The link was for the adjustment screws

'68



'69
