1952 door hinge cover screws

Can anyone tell me if there is supposed to be a clip or nut of some kind for the lower door hinge cover. I took mine off to do the vent windows and the screws on the passenger side were just in the door very sloppy. If you have a repair suggestion I am all ears.

thanks guys

Hi Gary
I think I know what you mean and there should be welded or riveted nuts on the door sheet metal assuming we are on the same page
But I’m only 90% sure what you are referring to
A photo would be awesome

Mine has nuts for the tiny cover to screw down

Yep, those are crimped in 1/4-20 nuts. You can get replacements (although weld-in) at McMaster Carr.
Weld Nuts [mcmaster.com]

The screws are oval head machine screws (mine were phillips head).

You could use these , no welding involved and have good holding power.

I used nylon inserts from the local hardware store.

How did you hold them when tightening the screws? Do you have long skinny arms with two or more elbows each? Kinda hard to reach nuts on the inside of the door after the panel is in place, isn't it? [on edit] OH, you mean the nylon license plate nuts that clip into a square hole. blush thumbs_up

The Rivnuts that Sack linked to would work. Also available from McMaster Carr (my hardware go-to).
