Default Moulding Clips

I have been looking for a supplier of the retaining clips for the chrome lower fender moulding on my 87 Cutlass Supreme Brougham. I havent been able to find any place that carries them. Is anyone aware of a supplier for them?
I also need to find a supplier of the clips for the interior upper winshield trim.

The clips I need are the large plastic ones on the bottom of the fender in front of the wheel. Like most Cutlass Supreme Broughams its the passenger side ones that failed. If you do have some to sell, PM me and we can work it out.
I guess I will have to go junkyard hunting to for the windsheild clips........ any tips on removing them?

Suggest a good local body shop. The shop that did my car has a guy/company that comes around once a month and supplies his cabinet with needed parts. I was surprised that my windshield/rear window chrome molding clips were still available when everyone else said, to bad. These shops are not easily going to give up their source but if your doing some business with them they may lighten up.

Beileve it or not, you can still get all the clips from GM. Let me know which ones you need and I can get you the part numbers.

I recently had my 84 cutlass painted. I removed all the chrome myself and put it back on after it was finished. I replaced all the chrome clips with new ones...I got them all from GM.

I don't doubt it for a moment, problem I have is the GM dealers around here (Knoxville TN) won't give me the time of day to do a national search. They could care less. Luckily I have an ols source in Florida who works the system to find this stuff. I try to only bother him for the "must have" items.

i agree with chef , even body shops calling in the orders are hard pressed to find a dealer with those clips , the clips si have alone took me about 2 weeks to track down ( smaller type clips for the chrome bottom moulding, end molding peices to "bolt" the molding to the door, and a bunch of other clips)

I took a look at the broken clips that are still on the car, they have #22510422 on them.

Anyone have any luck finding these? I need them also. I'm thinking of using the common, large, "S" shaped metal clips, with the green anti-rust coating, if I can't find them.
The link below has the front headliner clips, but not the rear ones. I don't remember which ones are the correct numbers. I actually ordered 3-4 differant sets, and one of them was the right one. I don't know of any way to remove them without breaking them. If fact, I broke two while installing them. You have to line them up exactly, and be really careful!

I'm going to be looking for some of these same clips in the future. I suspect GM would use the same clips on other models of similar years. I plan to check out 81-87 Gran Prix's, Regal's, and Monte's. Each of those models offered various chrome molding packages similar to the Cutlass.

The clips are fine until you remove the chrome, then the springy "arms" on the bottom break off! This has happend to me on every one I've tried to remove! I hope you have better luck. I'm giving up and going with the clips I described above. Now I'n looking for the clips that hold the band across the front of the vinyl top. I've found them for Buick (1/2') narrower, but not for Olds Cutlass.

Cool

How much did it cost you guys that did find those clips from GM to replace them all the way around the car?

Eastwood sells tools specifically made for removing chrome moldings without breaking the clips.
