Nice New Clip and Nut for Attaching Trunk Trim on any 1967 1968 1969 1970 Mercury Cougar
Reproduction metal rear deck / trunk lid moulding / trim clip for the Mercury Cougar. This clip comes with a correct looking nut and works with the 1967-68 aluminum trim and the 1969-70 stainless steel trim. This unit measures about 1-7/8" long with a stud height of about 3/4". 7 clips needed per trunk lid. Note that this clip features a stud that is a little longer than what was factory. If you have a swollen lip (rust) on your deck this will be an advantage to you, if not you will have to arch (bend) the clip to make the stud recess into the trim a little. Another option would be to cut a little from the length of the stud.
