Greetings,

I'm looking for a source for the clips the door panel nails go into. There are 13 in each door, I'm missing 8. I've checked the usual sources, no luck.

Thanks!!
Bryan

I'm assuming this is what you're looking for. The clip is one unit. Eckler's, one of the sponsors, sells them in sets of 10.

Thanks, but I'm looking for the clips that are in the door inner panel that the nails go into. I have the nails but some of my clips are missing.

Hum....on my '50 and two '51s, the nail does not go into a clip. It is driven into a slit that has been formed in the door shell itself. The image is of the lower trailing edge of the door on my '51 Fleetline. You can see one of the slits that is stamped into the door shell to accept the ring shank nails. Was the Belair done differently?

Since you are not a supporting member, you would have to secure a third party photo hosting web sight [I used Flickr with good success] and up-load your photos from that sight by pasting the photo's web address inside these two bracketed entries: [image]XXXXXXX[/image]. The X's represent the web address and the address must end in ".jpg".

I am a supporting member with paypal receipt in hand. I emailed admin and was told it would take a day or two for me to be set up.

When they get it straightened out I'll post a picture.

My inner door nail slots are the same size as what you posted but have a clip similar to a "U" clip that locks into the slot.

Is this what you have on your door?

If so, look at Restoration Specialties & Supply. Go to there web site and look on page 128 for item # 2471. These are for hardtops & convertibles.

Thanks Bob...I assumed sooner or later a Belair owner would add some valuable information. I'm still learning. I screen saved the image that they have in their catalog.
