    It's in the link, but for posterity they're GM Rocker Panel Moulding Clips #11518357 for a Chevy Avalanche. Available on Amazon and clipsandfasteners.com

    I've walked into body shops that dealt heavily in the make I was working on, politely explained my situation and always offer, to pay for the stuff if they were able to help me out. At the end of the day if they decline or accept payment I offer some good cold liquid refreshment. Often someone will give you a hint on best practices. If you need to go back you may be welcomed ''Hey Flying Dog" If they don't recall your name. .

    Hi All,

    I was adding rock gaurds to my headlights and the front grill just fell off. After going down the rabbit hole to find that the factory clips were discontinued. I found this forum and bought those clips from Amazon (link above ^). I have had success after a few modifications:

    *Notice - the corners are also snipped off the modified clip. I also put the neoprene washers back on before re-attaching the grill.


    It has been a month driving over mountain passes and on FSR's - the clips are holding up great. I hope this helps someone!

    - Meg

    Re: Exterior trim pieces and clips

    I should check again but last year I found a small shop that did 3D printing, but the cad work made it so unaffordable that I gave up on it. Now they have some hand held scanners that should make it less than an hour job. Maybe it worth a try. Any way nice to see your mod in picture Vangirl, thank you.

    Hey guys, I think this is an appropriate place for my question - any help finding replacement clips for the sliding door bottom exterior trim panel on a 1992 Master Ace Surf would be greatly appreciated. See image. Thanks so much.
