67 rear window trim clip question.

On my 67 there appears to be 2 different clips that are different from top to bottom. I want to make sure its right as I have it correct so I can change anything while in primer. Anyone have any input. And also where to get the taller clip if they are correct.

Tighten it till it strips and back it off a quarter turn.

Re: 67 rear window trim clip question.

All of my clips were like the taller round top clip. When I installed the trim, bending them outward to start helped. If you set the glass, make sure it gets all the way in tight because if it isn't compressing the seal all the way, the trim won't fit.

Re: 67 rear window trim clip question.

Check out "Mr. G's Fasteners" in Fort Worth, Texas. Their online catalog is a great reference. I found two different clips when the back glass in my '65 El Camino was removed, some original, some replacements. The glass company recommended a third kind of clip. The finished installation has all original design clips and the trim fits a lot better. A seemingly tiny difference in the clip can make a big difference in the fit. Three clip are shown below. Left to right: original, replacement I found when the glass was removed, and the last is the clip the glass people started to use. So, do your research! Cheers

None of them have the longer pin to snap distance that is on the top of my rear window.

Re: 67 rear window trim clip question.

As stated, the correct clip for 66-67 hardtop rear windows are the ones showed in the first pic you posted. They are unique to that recessed window design, so no other A-bodys used them.
