External trim clips???

Postby FrontlineRat » Mon Jul 22, 2013 1:15 pm

Hi All,

Some old dear reversed into my Impala, dented it and then drove off.... :mad As she did so the chrome strip fell onto the floor, leaving broken clips sticking out of the side of the car....In some places the clip shattered leaving a hole instead!!
My question is, where do you buy those 'clips' from? Are they even called clips??

I've only owned the car 3 weeks so just getting to grips with it all.
Many thanks for any assistance...
Cheers
Roy

Roy has Geoff's old '65.... :hello

do the clips look anything like this ?

or maybe something from here:

If you can identify the type of clip we can narrow the hunt down to the UK for you....

Hi Jon,

Thanks for that. I have managed to retrieve a 'clip' already. I'll take a pic and post it tomorrow!

Thanks
