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

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!

Wasting time here
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.
