Does anyone know if there is a good full kit available out there?

Subject car is a 57 Coronet Club Coupe.

Thanks.

I couldn't find complete kits but was able to get the correct clips by size from a variety of sources such as Fasteners Plus, Clips and Fasteners, Midwest Musclecar Specialties, and Altha Fastener. Check Ebay too. Good luck.

If you get tired of waiting and searching it is also possible to make them by yourself.
I had not one good clip for my Coronet 57 so I made every one of 1,5mm stainless and 4,2mm universal screws and speed nuts.
If you use these you have an extra molding line adjustment margin. A couple of nuts on both sides were not fun to attach... my arms were almost too short...
And of course you have to take off the interior panels to get to the nuts. It took me a couple of days to make 50 clips.
I made 1m strips and drilled and "screwed" and cut off the heads and welded and then I cut the strip into pieces. This went pretty fast.
