I used the clear Goop since I had new skins installed and the body shop in ‘85 didn’t have a nelson gun as far as I knew. There was only 1 Goop available back then but I see many today. Just use the strongest.

When I installed the lower LT trim on my car I filled the back side with resin and used a 3M 2 sided tape to in install. That's how all trim is installed on new cars and can be removed if needed. I believe that it will make it much more difficult to damage being a solid piece and not just the thin metal

Pictured is the way the clip sets on the door correct ? The 3/16 from the top of the door is where you would drill for the screw not the top of the clip ? I am going to use the adhesive and wanted to be sure on the clip placement.

Thanks do you have a photo of the factory ones ?

Already did and you quoted it in post 14. That’s what 1970 used. When I went to the GM Dealer in ‘85, he couldn’t find a match so I reused my factory part. I’m sure auto body parts stores sell all sorts of them, but is it the correct one. The chrome piece will not lock in if the clip is the incorrect one.

See my other pics here https://nastyz28.com/threads/help-with-upper-door-clips.331249/ I show the other clips the GM Dealer had but they didn’t have the correct one. The 1970 is noted with 1970 written beside it.

They have some cool pop rivet studs that work great. The orange is the original welded on ones.
