Hi,
While I am waiting for parts to get my Herald started, I thought I would ask if anyone knows what the parts/clips are in the attached photo and where they might go on my Herald.
Thanks,
Chip

Complete guess, but are they trim clips, to retain the end of some door or window seal?
The flat, other end would screw to a panel and be hidden under a carpet, or surface trim.

is the round end a full circle split on one side? if so maybe a ground clip for a bullet connector? - did not see any of those on 2 Herald 1200's I pulled apart in the last couple of years though

I think those are the end caps for the outer top header rail plastic finisher (which might or might not be on your car?).

EDIT: In this image, the piece is towards the bottom of the photo, a bit right of center.

Hmmm, I am not sure what the outer top header rail plastic finisher is, Andrew. Thank you again!

In reply to # 1470256 by caddis John,

Thanks!

That was Ralph, Chip, not me.

And I was right, even if I couldn't point you to the precise aplication.

Here's what bullet connectors look like, along with a typical "grounding clip":
