EH mouldings & clips

Hey,
Can anyone tell me if I have the clips fitted correctly.
Refer to the attached photos.
The spring loaded clips, not sure if it matters which way they go.
Could be upside down in the photo?
Also the flat type clips on each end, the screw goes through the panel from the inside into the clip?
The instruction sheet shows their locations, but no detail on assembly process.
Cheers.

Spring loaded looks ok the end stop needs flipping over so the little upturned piece on the end is up against the trim.
The way you have it it will scratch the paint

Thanks for the reply.
The end piece can't flip around.......that tab prevents it from fitting into the trim.
Looks like it only fits one way but I agree it will scratch the paint.
More research needed. Not much info out there.

When you put the trims on the doors have a real close look at the top and bottom edges before you put them on.
The top edges are slightly wider and flatter than the bottom edges on the door strips. It is very easy to put them on the wrong side of the car.
The front ones might be worth checking too, but I think they are the same both sides.
The ones on the back quarter panels only fit properly on the correct side because of the slight angle at the rear end.
Make sure the boot strip is the right way up as well.

Old is good.

Thanks for the tip, I would not have noticed that subtle difference.
Thanks mate.

Most people don't.
They usually notice a week or two after the car has been finished. Like I once did.
One of my mates still has to fix the wagon he restored two years ago.

Don't screw those screws in too far or the strip gets dented, easy to do.

Val Neil told me to drill holes in the bottom of the strips so the water can drain out and it does not sit in there-which I did.

You had to grind down the front screwed clips/plates to fit and maybe some others.

I did not bother using the commodore clip supplied for the rear wheel well on the wagon, I was told to trim it verbally which i didn't get to work.

Close enough. I'd laugh if the over photocopied partial instructions/pic has not changed. Post it up please.

This is the clip location instruction.
Im thinking it might be better to use Part Number B225 on the ends rather than the flat type (Part number 7421833) as that design seems [Naughty Pottyword].

a quick look i thought they looked different as it has been a while.
See the attached pics which just came off an EH trim bit, I would rip the tab off the new one in the pic above. The one with the tab is probably for an american car so...wrong part. B225 maybe too thick so check? The diagram/instructions are much better that what I have seen. Check twice on these things as once you break or ding the stainless it is hard to replace.

I remember I was glad I had some tiny triangle ones that looked original that I reused for the two front pointy bit ones, never seen these type since.

Thanks mate.
I agree, that tab doesnt look right.
I think i can get creative and modify them if B225 wont fit.
Thanks all for your feedback.
