Looking for clips for 700 Rocker Trim, this is the trim approximately 1 1/4 wide. I purchased some NOS Trim but no hardware. Thanks

Those clips are just about as extinct as the dinosaurs. I couldn't tell you how many of those rocker panel moldings that I found in original boxes, and every box, just about, at every dealership had the end torn open, and the clips missing. I came to the conclusion that it was also used at the time on another brand of the Chevrolet family, and that is why the clips were always missing. They needed the clips for another repair, and it was always faster and less expensive to take them from molding kits.
I have a 1962 full sized Chevrolet, and the reproduction clips for that rocker molding are junk. It took me 2 years of searching eBay, and other sources till I found enough clips to install the moldings this spring. The best suggestion that I could make, is to take your measurements, and search for a clip that will work when you attend any swap meets. The other suggestion would be to try a larger NAPA store that has the molding clip sample book, and stocks the clips. You might find something there that will work.
Good luck hunting, and Merry Christmas. Junk

I just used the two end screws, and some 3m double sided tape on my '63 700.. has held up for 10 years now!

Rick, Is your trim the full rocker trim or the smaller 1 1/4 700 Trim?
