    Got the 69 300 vert back from paint today. The paint shop removed the rocker moldings and in the process broke several of the molding clips. After some debate it was agreed upon that I would find the replacements. If I had left it up to them it could take up to 2 -3 weeks longer to finish my car, as of now it's been 3 months. Does anyone knows of a suitable good part and a parts source. In the process or getting ready for the 2nd Annual C Body Meet and could use some help locating these parts. Thankyou.

    I've got that manual. Just trying to speed up the process. Haven't found it yet.

    I think it's 6002611, same as a 70 300.

    How many do you need?

    My brother is making me some. He has a 3D printer. We are going to see if they work. If they do I’ll have him make a small run of them.

    Please keep me informed on your progress. That is a very doable idea.

    Will do. Biggest trick is making sure our material is good

    Soft polymer plastic won't work. Has too much flex. Just my two cents. Good luck.

    These clips are hard to find. Looking for similar side molding clips for my NYB. Murray Park has used ones.

    Another company I've had success with in the past is RJL. Roman is the owner. Easiest method is to take a photo and email it to him - he might be able to help. Much of his inventory is not in the catalog.
