    Question Clips

    Rich I think you are talking about the plate and the anti rattling clips different than the inside rod clips

    Yes, the anti rattle clips stop the door "rattle" while driving. The rod clips are essential to having working rods in the doors.
    I was able to buy a set of a 8 clips, the amount needed for all side/rear doors on ebay a couple years back. I was glad to find them! The longer clips don't look the same in the earlier post? Maybe they will work though... if they do great!

    Ebay m6 rack mount cage nuts
    My thought would be bend or grind off the tabs that hold the nuts in remove the nut . Will the rod clip end fit where the nut was??? These are used to mount equipment in data cabinets like chadsworth or ritel
    If the m6 size is too small the next size up if there is a next size up??

    108 this is me thinking out side the box just maybe
    Also what does early ford and dodge use ????
    They have rods like chevy what clips do they use?? Any chance they are the same!!

    Corvair??? What do they use are there rods in the side doors ???
    I no longer work where we had these cage nuts

    I appreciate the lead. I've seen nothing closer that this. It's a great lead, thank you! I've searched catalogs for clips but found nothing that would work. It's possible the cage nut may be useful with a little work.
