Wheel opening moldings
« on: March 12, 2016, 07:38:16 PM »
Got eagle back from body shop and am now ready to put it back together. Bought a bunch of screws and clips from body shop supply but they weren't able to find a match for the wheel opening molding plastic clips. Anyone have a jobber number/supplier?

Factory part number is 4006380.   Aftermarket part number is 79-5090.    You can get a pack of 50 for about $15 delivered.   Do a web search on "79-5090 retainer", and you'll see them.

Sorry to open an old topic, but I think it's worth noting that I contacted (2) Car-Pak distributors (East Coast Bolts and Crest Products both in VA) and a Car-Pak rep. directly who told me that P/Ns 79-5090 and 78-4825 had been DISCONTINUED by Car-Pak.  (See attachment below for images of these parts.)

P/N 83-5640 was still available and I ordered a box of those.

So I (and probably others) am on the lookout for any Nest members who actually bought boxes of (50) pcs of P/Ns 79-5090 and 78-4825 and didn't use all of them who may be willing to part with some of their stock for some GREEN $$.

I could have posted in "Parts Wanted" but it seemed silly to double-post.

If anyone has and is willing to sell some of the above Car-Pak P/Ns for mounting wheel flare trim could you please reply or PM?  Thanks in advance!

If he is slow to respond to your message, send him and email and he'll get right back to you.  I believe his email address is in his profile.  He's always taken good care of me!
