I'm having a hard time finding the (17) clips that hold on my taillight finish trim panel for my 1970 Charger.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

I've checked most of the online Mopar Specialty parts stores and so far - no luck.

I may be calling it (searching for) the wrong thing.

Thanks Again

I would try Charger Specialties. I made the ones on my car. I used flat stock about 3/8 inch by 1/8 inch. I drilled holes in the stock,put screws in them,and tacked the heads. I ground off as much as possible. I cut the flat stock about 1 1/2 inches long. Because the flat stock is thicker than the factory clips,they do not have to be a spring loaded clip like the factory clips. I just slid them into the finish panel and pressed down on the tabs to keep them in place during the installation.

I see that you have ordered them. For future reference, Mega Parts also sells them.
