: Chrome trim fasteners - can you still buy these somewhere ?

I found my two trim peices in the boot when I bought my 66 Caddy- there are only two of these clips left on one chrome strip.
I dearly want to put these back on but can't find these fasteners anywhere on the internet - are they Cadilac specific ? Perhaps a GM product used on other cars ? Can anyone help please ?
thanks :):thumbsup:

These clips were used in most GM cars of the same age. You can find many types of clips used in the 66 caddy in e-bay, for example: http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?_nkw=66+cadillac+clips&_sacat=0&_dmpt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&_odkw=69+cadillac+clips&_osacat=0&_trksid=p3286.c0.m270.l1313

You are lucky you still can fix your trim bar correctly. When previous owners of my 69 tried to reattach side chrome trims didnīt bother to look for the clips. Just drilled and screwed them to the body :nono:

Glad I'm not the only one whose car suffered that indignity. What are these people thinking?

Those are pretty standard type of fasteners.

I guess they were thinking of easy fast fixing, no time (or money) to look for original parts :helpless: Why that kind of people have to deal with these cars?
