I removed my stainless steel trim that runs along the rocker (Sill) panel below the door and need to replace a couple of the fixings (big surprise that rust ate them!) but nobody I have talked to recognizes them.
Does anyone here recognize them and possibly head me in a direction where I can source them?

Thanks
Andy

I don't believe those are original to the purpose, unless they changed after 1974: Originally they had a large "cup-disk" which had a pop-rivet body, and simply fit into a hole, and the pop rivet fixed it in place..TRF trims page

You might try (Restoration Specialties if you want to try to find the same type... Download their catalog, and flip through it...

Thanks guys,

The holes in my rockers are too big to try and use the pop rivet type now so I will have to find something different.

Scott, great resource for fasteners, cheers.

Tush, great reference photo. Keep those videos coming, very informative.

Cheers
Andy

Might you be able to use the ones in Tush's photo if you drill them an use a larger rivet?

In reply to # 1494391 by DerekM Might you be able to use the ones in Tush's photo if you drill them an use a larger rivet?

The holes are about 8mm diameter to take the fastener, might be an issue finding a pop rivet that size but I will take a look when the car comes back from the body shop (rusty rockers!)

Appreciate the advice.

Andrew, Is the body shop replacing the rusty rockers? If not, maybe they can braze the holes closed and you can drill new holes for the proper rivet clip, which is a blind rivet.

I used 3M double sided trim tape on both my Midget and TR6 trim on the trim strips under the doors on the rockers.
3M trim tape It can be found at many stores that sell automotive supplies and is available in different sizes. It is also easy to trim to size.
