I used the same clips, but instead of removing spring, I sanded off some of the top edge.
If you want to sell me the rest of your clips let me know. email is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

I will let you know, I have 2 more cars to do so I may have 10 or 15 extra clips. How many do you need?

Mark, your car takes 20. They are flat-sided bolts that slide down the channel. Use square nuts, all parkerized black.
My 31 and 32 are the same, but take fewer fasteners.

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

How does one 'parkerize ' a modern fastener? And can you do it with stainless if one was 'nuts' enough to ? Any tips?
I've painted other fasteners on the car but that is messy and , as I'm sure you know, doesn't look quite right.

Brad, you can buy parkerizing kits on eBay, the instructions are easy to follow.
Stainless steel blackening can be purchased at Caswell. This is even easier, no heat required.
