AMC clips
« on: February 24, 2012, 10:33:40 PM »
I have been on a hunt for trim clips. And I know there has got to be some others out there needing them too.
Well I am happy to say that I have found a place that supply these along with other AMC clips.
I first found but they did not carry the clips I needed so I contacted them. Susan had me look at and voila, carpak has the clips I needed and then some.
They will order these clips through which unfortunately only sales to registered distributors. Carpak specializes in offering the "hard to find" supplies for domestic and import vehicles.  Car-Pak provides clips and fasteners for over 20 automobile manufacturers.
Susan @ has been awesome at helping me out. I have talked with her over the phone and she was determined to find what I needed and that she did.  8)
79-5090  is $7.93 for a pack of 50
78-4825 is $10.27 for a pack of 50

WHAT!!! Girls can drive Eagle's too? Blasphemy!  :rotfl:

I kid I kid. I think I was corrected of this before too. Maybe we need a gender thing setup for our profiles to the left.

If you need some clips of any sort for an Eagle, get in touch with Tennessee Farmer from this forum.  Nor sure how often he is on the site anymore but profile probably contains his email address. 

Good luck!
