    From what I have read in the past there are special screws that work like the pins I believe. Do a search and you should find some info about this or others will chime in.

    I just removed my trim this weekend and had 1 of the pins break off so I need to know how to replace it as well. I will be researching it as well. Hopefully one of our second gen buddies on here will throw out some wisdom.

    Just be sure to remember to install the clips before you install the window.

    I posted this years ago, but Photobucket sucks these days.
    Look up Auveco 9877. A box of 100pcs runs under ten bucks. The resalers are charging a buck for each dime priced screw.

    Here's what I did on my 69 in case you want to go with welded on studs. I bought a Harbor Freight Stud welder and modified it.
