Hi - search hasn't helped to find the answer! Professional body shop is unable to re-fit the 10mm narrow door and wing trims on my Mk1 without leaving an awful gap between them and the paintwork. On this car the strip is identical to those of the P4 range. Most clips stayed on and the few that didn't are replaced with P4 clips/rivets from Brescos Loughborough. Parts book (P345) shows both slide on and clip on. Can this be the problem?

Hi Eric - no not on SEARCH
I have used the metal Bresco, Wadhams and Rover Co ones which are the same as the P4 on our Coupe and P4 without problem. There is a right way up though and they DO NOT slide on. Nylon clips also fit too but can be difficult to clip on. Use of the wrong (too big) pop rivet can distort the clips too
Are your strips chromed brass or stainless as these may use different clips?

Ones supplied (brass coloured) by Bresco for P4 said to fit but didnt! Re-purchase from John Wearing for P4 (bright silver coloured) have so problem fixed. Feedback to Howard who said he supplies Wearing so make of that what we want!
