Rocker panel trim is the long strip of aluminum trim (some people call them chrome trim) that runs below the door on the OUTSIDE of the car. When people take off their strips for one reason or another the clips (that hold the trim to the car) get lost or tweaked.
Replacement clips are difficult to find but members on our mailing list had a solution. Read on...
Subject: NEW INFO! T34 Rocker Clips
Jason Weigel here from lovely Poway, CA, about 5 miles from Lee.
Lee & I were here goofing around getting my 1964 T34 ready for the KG Treffen, and we got to talking about these nasty little T34 rocker panel clips that everyone seems sure are so hard to find.
Since I also own Notchbacks, I thought I'd compare the beltline trim clips to the T34 clips that were on my original T34 (that are now in the mail to Mel for his 1968 345). The Type III deluxe side trim clips are IDENTICAL to the T34 rocker clips.
Bill & Steve's sells the clips and the little rubber boots (door panel boots) to make your day! Call them at 562 923 3251 to order them.

You can also use the simple beetle side molding clip up to `66. It is exactly the same part than the Type 3 Ghia rocker clip. Years ago I found a box of the Type 3 Ghia ones and wondered that they looked liked the beetle ones, except of a yellow zinc style finish.
