The trim strip that fixes along the sill top (p/n 715939?) - as standard is it fixed with self-taps or trim clips?
The ones on Binny (1973 Dolomite) were screwed on, but not sure what they "should" be?

Cheers, Sam

Hi Sam.

Yes, trim clips were originally used - this link will help:

If you don't fancy drilling holes for the clips,I have found that Gorilla Tape does a good job of holding the trims on.

Thanks for the tip James. As the strip already has holes for self-taps I'll re-attach it using that method, but I'll be on the lookout for a pair of strips that are new/original. If I find replacements I'll use the clips as most of the holes appear to already be there.
Cheers, Sam
