I ended up modifying the crappy $9 each repros... Not exactly correct, however given the starting point pretty good.

I used a vice and bent the front tab to a right angle I made a die and and anvil out of a grade 8 bolt and piece of pipe and then used my vice as a press to reform the clip, next I ground it to the correct width, then I used a round file to file the round cutouts and finally filed the edges to clean it up.
I probably have $50 in labor in each one.







I drew out a quick oblique of the clip with dimensions.

Bring this topic up again in the near future.  I have a wrecking yard in Vancouver WA that has about 14 wreaked 1st gens.  Most have been stripped to nothing, but I could check for the clips in the future.

Well, here you go.  I still need two of these clips.  I would appreciate ANY help.

I found some on Firebirds years ago but all mine were missing so I don't have extras. You might try some Pontiac parts vendors. Martin

I found a guy at Carlisle who has a ton of parts from parting them out over the years and he found one for me. Look for the old type guy who parted them out years ago. Not an easy part to find.....but I only needed one also.....
Glass beaded mine and had them clear zinc coated.

I haven't forgot.  I just didn't get a chance to go there yet.
