So the bird is done but he broke the window trim clips. He says he can not find them. I have not went to see the car and will shortly but he described them as the clips that snap on the outside door to hold the chrome molding. Anyone have one they can show me and or a place  to buy them?

Its the second one. I did some searching and found them on Firebird central but they are behind in shipping. I found them on eBay and it was 26 for 12 shipped. I told the shop to put the trim in the trunk and I would take the care and put the trims on myself. I don't need the car sitting there a week for a few trims. Thanks for the help.

I don't think they looked too hard, but better than just ordering incorrectly either. If originals they may have been brittle, perhaps lucky or they'd have bent trim.

I have to replace my windshield and thinking I should get some clips because I know some of these gotta break when I pull the trim.
