I looking for fasteners to hold the long trim located below the grill of my 1947 pick up. The ones I have left are to rusty to reuse. Any one have any to to sell? Is there something more modern that would work? If so where can I locate them? This is for the long trim pieces that wrap around the front.

    Oftentimes auto body paint stores have selections of clips of various designs which may work for these trim pieces.  They may not resemble the originals but could work. I am also almost ready to search for the clips for my 47 pickup

    I bought clips from these guys http://stores.restorationspecialties.com/. Under moulding fasteners or just put Hudson in the search box

    I got some (I think) elevator bolts at the hardware store.  Large head which I ground 2 sides flat to fit in the trim.  BTW, restorationspecialties has the clips that go in the grill bars in stock, listed for 46 Hudson.
