    I need some pictures and measurements for the proper position of wire retainer & clear retainer?
    I think my coat hanger retainer is in the correct location directly about the back door glass opening. So measurements from there would be appreciated! Thanks

    I really appreciate you taking the time for this info.
    So I have the clear clip & i moved the front black elastic hook(that i thought was a hanger hook) back where the hanger hook is at the back. Do you know if the front black hook is the same as the hanger hook?
    I got some of the wire retainers like picture #2 with the car and thought they were to be used also?
    But maybe not? I have this type on my 70 SS Chevelle. Thanks

    The front hooks are the same as the rear coat hooks . The wire retainers were on my car when I got it also . I believe they were a over the counter part that could be had from GM

    So your saying the original factory/stock was just the blk hooks and clear clip only?

    Yes and they used a elastic strap to hook over the front hook like on the first picture above from Copo’s car .

    70 and 71 used only the coat hooks and the clear plastic clips.

    I believe that 72 is when the switch to the wire loops happened.
