    cray1801 Too much is just right.

    Would anyone have a part number or source for this plastic clip that holds the rocker molding along the bottom? I have the metal ones on the ends but not the plastic ones between.

    Every one of mine broke, here are the pieces of the puzzles :(

    What year are those? I only remember steel rings held on by screws and a flat piece of steel.

    Good question,`72 Skylark...thanks!

    I think the profile looks something like this:

    Maybe they only have one tang. Here's my best prior to removal picture, already damaged...

    Any auto body supply place will have them. Even auto zone usually stocks s few in varying sizes.

    So we are not talking about the wide GS still trim? Maybe they are correct for other style trim?

    Thanks guys, but no luck yet. Still need to call Restoration Specialties.

    Here's the inside dimension of the molding
