Rear Windo Molding clip?

My lower 2 rear window molding pieces have always been lose so I pulled them off to see there is only 3 clips on one side and none on the other. All posts for the clips are there. Side & top molding is on fine

In looking at clips this one looks closest to the one on the car now

Any comments on this brand of clips or tips & tricks, beyond just sliding the clip on the posts (silicone?)?

I see how the clip would engage the inside of the outer turned under edge of the molding

It would appear when the body shop installed the glass, for P.O., after paint they ran out of clips as the ones that are there (3) look original. There are 12 posts to mount the clips

Fortunately there appears to be no bondo and the stock studs into the rear cross panel are all solid

these clips look like what is on the car now

but NPD is close to me that has the AMK re-pops

Either will work. The Rick's look closer to original to me. They slide over the studs. If you don't have the studs, some use screws. I as well as most prefer the studs.

Re: Rear Windo Molding clip?

I don't know if it will help or not, but I did a ton of research on what the correct clips were for my 69 quite a while back. Here is the post with some pics over on CRG: 69 Vinyl Top Windshield Trim Molding Reveal Retainer Clips

Thanks Keith, yeah the Rick's one look closer to the originals. I don't care about if either are "correct", not my thing. Just if anyone has used either and if one works better than the other.

All the posts are there. It appears whoever put the trim on did put them on each stud for the top piece but as they progressed to sides they just used the lower one (of 2) and then only 4 on the bottom where there are 12 posts

I know the top body panel above trunk is very prone to rust from water that runs off rear window but fortunately this car appears to have had a "garaged" life as that body panel is solid. It has lived its life first in CA & then AZ which is where I got the car. Even looking at it from inside the trunk it has the original splatter paint and there is no sign of rust at the panel seams or anywhere on it so all studs are solid. There is some residue from the cut & buff compound in the channel around window but otherwise the channel is in excellent shape. Going to take a pic for the "car file" showing its condition as otherwise it will be covered with the trim.

I will grab a bag of clips today at NPD

AMK makes quality stuff. I'm Shure either will work.

Download a catalogue from Auveco or W&E. I obtain all my quality clips through local suppliers.
