Yes, and I get them by the baggie from the VW parts houses. Just wondering
whether plastic subs are available...less likely to scratch paint.B

Volks, We all know the little metal compression clips that hold our beetles’
door panels to the metal doors. They work okay, though they can break from
metal fatigue after a while. Or rust. Or get lost. Has anybody discovered any
substitute clip that performs the same service, using the 10 mm holes in the
masonite panels and the 8 mm holes in the door metal (I’m going from memory
here, y’all)? There are zillions of little plastic upholstery clips at every
FLAPS, and maybe just one fits old VWs. Any experiences to report? Bert Knupp
