I am sure there has been several articles written on this subject, but I don't know where to find them. I am looking to buy the pair from Steele Rubber Products Item #60-0320-73, but they were originally held in at the bottom of the pillers with a bracket and two screws and with a plastic rivets in the middle and the top. Are these rivets still available and if not how are the attached? I've looked in shop manual, but have not found any information on installing them.

Here's how they should look on a '50 Chevy. I'm quite sure the clips come with the Bellows. However, I will go and check it out.

I don't know that they are available anywhere...other than a wrecking yard. They have kind of a tri-pronged part that inserts into the hole. The prongs collapse then re-expand when the rivet is inserted.
