Does anyone know what kind of fasteners held the 2 silver inserts in a 71 challenger grill?

It's the same clip used on the 71 Cuda grille "C" stainless sections around the "cheese graters", I would try R/T Specialties...

Thanks to both of you. Have a friend who has a 'Cuda and he is asking for help in piecing back together his car.

It's been awhile dealing with 71 Challenger grills, maybe you can help with a description?, but IIRC it's a plastic type pop rivet?

It's the 2 plastic rectangles that the stainless trim mounts to. There's 8 or 10 spots for them to fastened to the grill itself and I'm just wondering what kind of fastener that is. I don't know how to post a picture.

On the left and right side of the grille, there are two of these mounts per side and slide horizontally, that are the sockets for the screws that mount the headlight bezels to the grille.

The left and right ornaments were mounted onto the grille frame with black anodized aluminum rivets. Eight per ornament.
