I’m trying to get the trim sorted out for my 1953 hardtop. I purchased a nearly complete set of belt line mouldings. The retaining clips have broken off the mouldings. There is an extant clip which does not work with my car. I assume it’s from different year.
Q. Does anyone make or supply these clips?
Q. Has anyone had success reaching the clips to the pot metal?

Thank you.

There were different clips used in different parts of the production run. Have you looked at the body parts catalog?

Yes I have Roy. Seems this trim is not from 53 but I will need to modify them to make them fit the 53 body clip retainers. The 53 trim has a “button” type clip. The button portion is what I’m looking for. They were part of the trim from the factory. The retainers are available from a few vendors.
