4 clips that were at 12, 3, 6, 9 o'clock.
They clipped over the lip of the rim.
Not sure about the valve stem hole...
The "NOS" ebay pieces are rarely the correct ones.

Thanks thats what I thought and,thats the answer I was looking for.I see people bidding on aftermarket ones that are advertised as NOS or near NOS or Original 69 Z/28.I just saw someone pay $280 for trim rings advertised as for 69 Z/28.They were not the correct ones.

                        Thanks,Chris

It was my understanding that the lip of the trim rings was different on originals as compared to service items.

I bought some of these NOS "correct" trim rings years ago.  I'll see if I can post an image of one for you.

The last set of true NOS correct ones I saw went for $600.
