1966 Corsa Seat back upolstery trim

My question is about the trim pieces inset into the seatbacks. Do the three diamond-shaped pieces come on repo covers? The picture in Clark's of 66' covers doesn't seem to show the trim in the replacement covers... any info. appreciated. Phil

You will need to save the old ones. Re-stick them with glue when you do the new upholstery.

Not sure if Clarks sells them.

Phil,
Are you asking about the seat covers or the door panels. The trim buttons on the seats are held by retainers on the back of the cover. The trim on the door panels are glued on.

I have 31 short glue on style ones available for the door panels.

Also long glue on ones for the 68 door panels.

Thanks, Al, I'm looking for (and think I found) the six needed for the front seat cushion backs on my 66'. Jeff at the Corvair Ranch thinks he has some. Phil

Clarks new seat covers do not come with them. The original seat trim is held, on the backside, with push nuts. I was able to remove my originals, flatten the nuts, and reuse. A towel over a block of wood, used to support the trim, allowed me to shove the trim post through the seat cover and install the original push nuts. A nut driver worked great as a push tool to put the nuts back on. A slight tap with a hammer did the trick. I did not want to rely on glue to keep them in place forever.
