Trim clips

PostPost by: davidallen » Wed Jan 25, 2006 8:55 am

Hi,

Which way up do the trim clips which hold the horizontal trim below the
doors on the +2 go?

The "curve" at the top or the bottom?

I removed my original one's before painting........

Thanks in advance.

David

Curve to bottom

set trim across upper tips; smash with rubber hammer to make it pop onto the lower rounded part. Just like the factory.

I made nylon buttons cause I wanted my trim sorta straight

David,

The pointy ends face up. When you fit the trim back on make sure the angled
edge is at the top with, obviously, the rounded edge goes to the bottom.
Fit the trim in place at the toop then press in and downwards and the trim
should just pop into place. Just did this job last weekend! You'll also
need 3mm pop rivets to hold the clips on.

Regards,

Hamish.
