I was a an auction on Saturday, and ran across a fastener supplier that I did not know about. The name of the company is Wurth. They have a number of wagon fasteners for trim that are impossible to get anywhere else. For instance the grommet that fits in the hole in the fender for the upper front woodgrain trim on the RMs. It is the same piece as the one that fits in the door for the OCC cladding top mounts, and in the bottom of the door for the lowest trim on the Caprice. Their website is wurthusa.com, and their phone number is 1-800-987-8487.

I do not know the prices.

As an interesting note, I was watching the race today, and noticed that they sponsor a car in NASCAR.

I have a big back of assorted clips at home that an ISSF member (nashsurecanpaint IIRC) sent me a long time ago. If anyone needs a specific clip, let me know and I'll mail it out to you.

I looked at Wurth and several others on the net, even went to a body shop, where can I get the clips for the rear corner moldings? Or should just fake something? Sad

I don't know where you'd find those clips, someone may know, but I don't think so.

This is what I did, assuming that it's just the part that is broken that snaps into the bumper cover.  Drill through the broken piece and use one of these to replace it:



I've done it twice and it works great.  If the clip itself is broken, you'll probably have to find one at a JY.

If the shaft of the clip is still there, you can use a tight fitting grommet over it. The clip is at best hard to find, and even harder to find with the detents intact. I try to save any I see, but do not have any right now.
