    I have not tried the clip on the trim or on the car, but I would bet the cost of enough to mount the trim to the rocker that they would work.

    This photo is a bit deceiving. Both are setting on the table top but the tab on the new one moves the new one up significantly

      My driver's side is missing a few clips, I might buy a few more and try this clip on for size with the seals I'm reverse engineering.

        I'm trying to identify the manufacturer and see if they can tweak the shape a tad at the top and bottom if it is needed. untapped market!

          What's the GT rocker moulding look like? I would say in todays world that's pretty damn good/close! Nice research. Some light sanding/grinding and I bet yer golden!:thumbsup:

                Well I'm a bit disappointed...

                I made a rocker mockup and when I tried to expand the tabs to lock the clip on to it one of the tabs broke off.

                The image on the online sellers website shows a chromate colored clip with the tabs standing in a natural position.

                The clip I received hac some coating on it but looks more like shiny zinc.

                And the tabs look flattened

                Perhaps a little heat before standing the tabs up would ease the bend.


                Still worth further investigation.

                I tried to have the seller put me in touch with the manufacturer but that does not seem to be going any where.
