Great thread Mike.

So exactly how many 6002263 clips were used for the rear window?

Any for the front windshield...how many 6002263 and how many 6001855 are needed?

I see the Totally Auto clip set for 68-70 Charger Front Windshield includes 2 short but wide clips that haven't been referenced in this thread...another Totally Auto goof up?

Still looking for an answer on this.  brickwall

Hi Don,

Your answers to your first two questions are in the first post re: Excel screen shots.

Sorry I don't have an answer about the two oddball clips.

Chris, did you actually see the j-nut on that site somewhere or are you just throwing it out as a possible source?

Keep in mind when replacing the front windshield reveal molding clips that the early 68 cars used a different style lower clip for the two pieces of trim attached to the cowl.  They are much taller and thus sit lower down into the recessed area.  I believe that the transition period would have been probably in the January '68 time frame.  This taller clip was used on the 66 and 67 B-Bodies.  Also, in 1970, the four clips that are on the A-pillar were changed to a shorter profile.  The profile that had been used up to that time will work as the difference is next to nothing.  Nobody to my knowledge has ever reproduced the smaller clip as it was only used for the one year period and only used in a small amount and the other clips would work without the expense of tooling up for an additional clip.  As for as anyone making a really correct clip kit for almost any of these applications, you will not find it out there.  What you do find is that they have found something that may or may not work.  You can possibly get them to work, but they will take some tweaking.  We buy up all of the obsolete clips as we find them.  Just because something looks close, does not mean that it will work.  Always check the swap meets for boxes of old clips as you never know what you may find.  And if all else fails, it may come down to modifying something that will work with some fabricating.

I bought a complete set of window clips for my 68 Charger. The lower windshield clips didn't match.  I had to get the windshield lower clips for a 1967 Charger.  My 68 was built Dec 67.

Hi all,

Really need help on this.

I just bought the rear taillight panel trim pieces, the trim piece that goes under trunk lid, and the 2 pieces that go curve down. My car did not have those pieces, I guess holes were covered when car was painted sometime ago.

-I need to know what screws are used on the trunk lid trim piece, so I can make holes and use correct screws.

-The 2 side pieces, I know they use No 8 screws, No 10 were to big, didn't fit through. Are black oxide screws used on those since that part of the trim is painted black? Each trim piece has a "tab", which I gotta make a hole on panel so it can go though. Question, once those tabs go through panel, some sort of clips are used to hold piece in?

For those who worked with those trim pieces, please get back to me, really need this help!


Thank you,
Billy

Here are pictures of the pieces.

Does anyone know, or can someone check on their cars for me?

Thank you!

The pointy stubs that stick off of the curved trim pieces have palnuts attached to them from inside the trunk, they cut their own threads on the first install, also called speed nuts. Any local parts house should have them.



The long stainless piece that goes across the trunk opening is held on with the same screws as the wheel opening moldings I believe.
