Trim clips for radiator air intake

PostPost by: Bigbaldybloke » Tue Jun 13, 2017 7:18 pm

Hello, does anyone know who can supply the clips that secure the stainless steel trim that goes around the main air intake under the front bumper. Mine are all corroded through. They look like a small thin square of metal about 3/8" square with a thin stud welded to the back which is then secured with a small nut. Looks like there should be four. I have the strip of metal that links the two halves together.
Thanks
Simon

SJ Sportscars has a nice product: a plate that slips into the channel of the trim, and has a threaded stud welded to it. They sell them in a set. A bargain, and a secure way of mounting those precious/unobtainium parts :mrgreen:
