Howdy ya'll! It's been a while, but I've been working so hard and I'm finally finished painting. I'm starting to install trim and such back on. However I've run into a snag. The original moulding clip retainers for the rocker panel trim and the reveal moulding around the back glass (located near the rear quarter windows) was so badly rusted that parts of the pieces practically crumbled in my hand or was ripped off and still attatched to said moulding when trying to remove it (I was gentle, I promise!) So I'm wondering if anybody happens to know of a supplier or any alternatives to obtain this seemingly obscure part. I searched here on the forums and through the standard Buick supplier website but came up empty handed. It seems that they might be fairly simple to fabricate, but metal forging is not my forte. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. This being said, looks like spring is gonna be the official maiden voyage!
