I'm re-installing the trim around the cockpit on my 59 Sprite (after
painting the car). The pieces came off having clips behind approx. 1/4
The screw went into the clip behind the hole like a sheet metal screw. The
sides and rear have not been a problem, but the front piece has been
difficult getting the screws to bite back into the clips that I took out
Any ideas on how this process might be improved? The front trim piece has
a very limited space behind it to line up the clip with the small hole in
it to grab the screw. I have been trying to hold the clip behind the hole
with needle nose pliers and a flashlight shined into the trim piece hole in
order to see if it is setting up correctly into the clip before applying
I am wondering if I am attempting to re-install these soround trim pieces
incorrectly due to finding them installed this way when I took them off?
I am fine with the sides and the back piece, yet I may have not installed
these correctly either?
