: I need a trim source.

I need some trim for my 1992 Brougham D'Elegance.

1. The chrome trim for around the driver's side rear wheel well.
2. The chrome rocker panel moulding for the driver's side quarter panel.
3. The plastic quarter panel moulding.

I've seen the above on Ebay, but that's hit and miss. Right now there's nothing on. Does anyone know of a supplier? I've looked online and can't seem to find the parts I need.

I'm buying a 1991, but it's missing the above trim. I'd rather not take it off my 1992, as that would make it harder to sell.

Thanks
Rob

Try local junkyards. The one's I've dealt with allow their customer's to find and pull insignificant parts like body trim, and they don't charge for it. If you don't know how to remove those pieces, then their workers will pull the part at your expense.

Find out what other years Cadillac used those trim pieces, so you can identify good donor cars in the yard. If you do not know exactly how to remove/install the trim, then I recommend you acquire an OEM service manual (http://shop.ebay.com/items/?_nkw=1991+Cadillac+brougham+shop++manual&_sacat=0&_trksid=m270&_odkw=1991+Cadillac+brougham+Service+manual&_osacat=0), which will help you with every other repair.

Problem being, I'm in Canada, and Broughams' are scarce. None of the wreckers in the area have the parts.

I've got the service manual and can pull the trim, but clips are a problem as they're old and brittle.

I should call GM and see if I can still get the clips.

The dealership should be able to get the clips for a price. I've seen a few eBay stores (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/90-91-92-Cadillac-Fleetwood-Brougham-SIDE-TRIM-CLIPS_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp3286Q2em20Q2el111 6QQhashZitem4835a3cdc2QQitemZ310137572802QQptZMoto rsQ5fCarQ5fTruckQ5fPartsQ5fAccessories) or the odd auction (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/90-92-cadillac-fleetwood-brougham-painted-moulding-clip_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trkparmsZ72Q3a1205Q7c66Q3a 2Q7c65Q3a12Q7c39Q3a1Q7c240Q3a1318Q7c301Q3a1Q7c293Q 3a1Q7c294Q3a50QQ_trksidZp3286Q2ec0Q2em14QQhashZite m335185d540QQitemZ220411057472QQptZMotorsQ5fCarQ5f TruckQ5fPartsQ5fAccessories) that sell GM trim clips.

You could also check eBay for people parting out their Brougham's. If there are none on the eBay Canada, try the American eBay and see you can find someone willing to ship internationally.

Woo hoo! I found a local source completely by fluke....the missing chrome fender trim, rocker panel moulding AND the clips!

Local guy who had an add on ebay for a hubcap. I asked if he had any other parts, and voila. He's even got the centre cap for my wire rim.
