I have a 58 Delray 2dr sedan. It has windshield moldings and I am about to have the screen installed (it is a project car). The lower corner moldings attach with a clip that bolts through the A-pillar and I suppose, is secured with a speednut. My moldings do not have the clip and I can't seem to find any company selling them (or to tell me what they look like). Can I buy them new - and where? Can I modify the clip for the 57? (the 57 molding is more right-angled than the 58). There are only 3 club members in NZ and none of them have had their screens out and can't help me at all. All help greatly appreciated. You can email me at rosebush40@gmail.com if you like. Thanks, Bruza.

When I took mine out, the Speednuts were gone and the Clips were pretty rusted. Although one was better than the other but I believe I sent it along with the Moldings that I sold. I'm pretty sure you will not find any new ones, other than NOS which would be rare as hens teeth. I would say the only options you really have would be to find a used set in an extremely dry climate or possibly be lucky enough to find someone that has a used set in storage. If neither works, you may have to make a set. Also, not real sure about the '57 Clips, but it may be worth a try.
