I am going with the black ones below
At first I hoarded those door clip thingy mcboobers, but ended up finding some heavy duty nylon replacements from the the local small hardware store. They were just labeled as nylon bushings. $OR would sell that pile for $10.
don't forget the $5 handling fee and the $20 shipping.
I am replacing the metal clips that rip the paper board everytime you remove the door skin with the black body clips. I will have to punch out the door skin for the clips to work, but in the end I think they will look good.
Where did you get those body clips in the second pic cardinal?
first time i removed my door trims i got sick of the arrangment, breaking the metal tabs and breaking the masonite backing etc. i also got sick of the daggy looking door trims with the torn vinyl and so on.
i found the perfect replacement at a local trailer/hardware scarpyard, $5 a sheet, 1 sheet does one door, perfect stuff, is made of some form of plastic and is furry on both sides, just cut with angle grinder and screw on with self tappers.
looks great now
sorry if i hijacked your thread.
They are called trim retainers. Come in tons of sizes and shapes. Google them.
Take a look here.
and are affectionately known as christmas trees.
Those plugs are a good idea, especially since I have door internal problems about 5 times a year. The clips do tear stuff, and are hard to get if you don't have a junked 55 nearby. My door panels didn't come out the nicest, but were very easy to make, a little 0.125" masonite, some upholstery staples, and a yard of vinyl.
And you didn't post any pics to show us how they turned out??? Shame on you
FWIW C-Dan get $.10 for each of those trim retainers. Congratulations, you're a rich man..
