68 Tailgate To Bumper Seal

Time to replace this rubber seal. The previous owner seems to have installed it with some plastic push pins, and the rubber has torn around all those holes. I see on-line they also sell the repo clips for this seal. Anybody have a picture or some visual of how those clips work. they appear to have two screw holes and then a clip arrangement in the center.

Does the rubber go through the clip in the center, or get held down by the two outside holes. I cannot find anything in the body or assembly manuals about this seal.

Re: 68 Tailgate To Bumper Seal

Rubber flap is under the metal flange, and the clips install from underneath as well, sandwiching the rubber between the clip and metal flange.

It is a rare man who can count his own blessings and not mistake them for personal achievements.

The rubber only lasts for 2-4 years before cracking. The one from NPD seems to last the longest.
