Attached is a photo of an exterior trim clip on my 1200. It looks to be a rivet with some sort of plastic or fiber (the brown disk behind the rivet). Is this a tuckers rivet? Anybody know where I can get this. I go to Rimmer Bros and they point me to a simple rivet. But it has no fiber/plastic element. It looks like the fiber disk is what the trim actually clips onto. Can anybody steer me to some good info on this?

What the picture tells me is that someone tried to make something (similar to the original) work. Originally, the round base was metal (probably about that same diameter) held by a rivet that fit INSIDE the base (not unlike the snaps for the top boot or tonneau cover but not the same piece). It doesn't appear that the original "button" -- for lack of a better term -- is currently available, but I'm not sure about that.

I just purchased some similar fasteners for my TR250 at Victoria British. They are wider that what is shown in your photo but I wonder if the side trim for a TR4A would be the same size as that used for the Herold. The side trim for a TR4A is smaller that that used for the TR250. As close as you are run over to Victoria British with your trim and check it out.

Hi Shannon
Try Canley Classics Coventry Uk
The bit under is rusty , I assume this is the clip for the body side chrome strips?

Hi Paul,
Actually, it looks like rust, but it's just plastic or fiber. Yes, it is for the exterior chrome door strips.

I've seen that type on Heralds before: They were replaced with a stamped cup rivet: The TR6 uses the same ones on the trim for the factory hardtop. TRF carries them, but so do the other major players...

Thanks Scott,
I went out to Victoria Brittish today, and we tracked down the rivets. They are the same on the 250.
Thanks for the help to all of you folks!

Thanks.
