I have a 70 Plymouth that wasn’t an original vinyl top car. I will be adding one and need to know what trim clips are needed and how they get secured to the car. Anyone have any photos they could share?
Thanks

These are the same style clips I used on the 69 Roadrunner. You have to drill 3 holes per side. But the clips pop into the holes. The clips slide into the chrome and you can move them around. I had a Hotrod Mag link that shows where they are placed.

Here they are at megaparts.

Here is a set of the trim with the clips.

No problem. Just make sure you put the rear glass lower chrome in its place so that you get the rear of the vinyl top chrome to line up. They run into each other at the back. The front portion of the chrome kind of ends at the drip rail. I can shoot some pictures of the Roadrunners chrome if need be.
