[Chrysler300] roof panel retention strips, Chrysler/Dodge


First thanks to all for recent help by several in club on 67 Dart full nose parts, still looking (accident)  ;


Now, I am looking for the snap in plastic strips that are often hardened by age and break easily when trying to remove,  to repair 300 roof or headliner panels . They hold the perf cardboard style roof panels onto the hidden bows, and sometimes used with other roof designs too.


We were  able to salvage 90 % of last car I did (strips), , 57 Dodge, came from Montana, cold weather may help preserve, but present car 62 Chrysler from southwest, they are baked solid, snap . After fighting this on 57, I vaguely remember accidentally finding a source for these somewhere, later?? . (or wishful thinking) .


Anyone know about that source? We should for sure add this to reproduction parts list, if not made somewhere, as you cannot put headliner back up without it? Some are metal finished and some are cream colored plastic. Latter is great if you have nothing otherwise. Also used in all mopar 57 up to XX?


By the way, you can reinforce warped panels with 2-3  thin oak strips ( about size of paint stirrer) glued to back, and then lightly spray front with rattle can. Comes out great. If you have strips to put it back up.
