Fasteners or body clips?
« on: Oct 02, 2021, 05:46:01 am »
i am trying to source some of the body retainer clips or stuff like the plastic pieces for holding the grille and cant find any online that look like they fit. any time i take something off those dried out plastic pieces snap and i cant reattach stuff. any leads would be fabulous, thanks

I've tried looking for seemingly obsolete stuff on Megazip and also just sourcing bits off of 90s Toyotas in the yard. Often it can be tough to not break anything when taking things apart but we all try our best. :)

Mia the '91 Miata - Revived Twice! (264k); BP-5A 1.8L swap, an NB in NA clothes

Protip: 90s Mazda 626 (and maybe other Mazdas?) looks to be the same clip. I don't have two side by side, but maybe worth looking into.

I took the grille off a friend's 97 626 and though the clips looked exactly the same...
