I had to replace the roof and both quarter panels on this car.
I’m going to reinstall the vinyl roof.
I’ve drilled the mounting holes inside the sail panel.
I’m getting ready for paint and I need to drill the mounting holes for the outside of the sail panel (where the vinyl roof stops).
The car came with the trim in the trunk so I have no idea where the clips go.
the new clips came with a weird one with a wire tail.
Is there a drawing or pictures somewhere of how to mount this trim piece?

Thanks for any help!

Cant help on the holes. But there should be 5 fasteners. 3 that pop in the front 3 holes and the 2 rear ones have a wire tail with a machine thread stud.

The wire tail / spring is to keep the clip / mount in place. It stops the clips from all sliding to one end.
Place your mounting stud/ clip at the spot you want inside the trim channel then lift the spring/wire end into the channel.
