    Boot trim on van!

    My friend has just recently gave me a trim that goes along the bottom of your tailgate but it has no clips fot it! Where is the best place i can get clips from? does anyone know?

    you'll have to go to Vauxhall for them as they don't come off the bootlid very easily as they're part-stuck, part-rivetted on. The estate has rivets along the tailgate that clip into the panel, which your van tailgate won't have

    this is why I never refitted mine when I swapped over my tailgate

    I'll see if I can post a picture or two to show what I mean

    EDIT - not sure if you can see on here... in the middle of each of the clips, you'll see two little white dots which are the heads of the rivets. I will try to take a better picture of the tailgate with the rivets on tomorrow if I can, its buried in the shed at the minute

    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    Ok well wouldnt it just be easier with a tad of mastick or should i invest in the clips? I just have a feeling they will be a b*****d to fit on as youve gotta line them up.

    the trim is hollow on the inside iirc so you wouldnt have anywhere to stick the mastick.

    Silkaflex would be better mate but yeah the principle's the same and it would be easier! You'll need to attach three or four blocks to the inside of the panel as its hollow, and you'll need two more pairs of hands.. one person each side and you to stand there and tell them when they've got it level and can stick it on

    give them a call if you definately want the clips, I'd make up some small blocks to fix to the panel and then stick it to the car. much easier! You'll need to make sure you get it lined up right however you do it though

    petes idea sounds good.
    it would be harder to fit the clips than to make something up IMO.
