Lucky me - I found that hard-to-get trim piece that mounts near the windshield on the dash of a 1954 3100. Found it locally - traded for a 50 round box of 9mm ammunition, great deal. Good condition too , but it only came with 2 of the clips that hold the piece at the proper attitude. (shown)

Question: Are the ones shown in the link a functional substitute? They differ in appearance from the originals , but the vendor lists them as that particular part.

Thank you , 'Ski

Age 68 is not too late to start hot rodding , right?

Apparently there are different styles of clips for the windshield trim.
This thread has some discussion of the clips on my '51, which might be a little different, since it has the split windshield, versus your '54 single piece windshield.
Anyhow, just throwing that out there for some ideas.
Good luck with your search.

That background info is appreciated.

The parts offered by "brothers" are so inexpensive that I may as well get them. At the very least they would be easier to tweak and adapt rather than start from scratch.

Yeah , well , now I'm about to turn 70 and my truck is scattered all over 2 different shops.
Working and spending isn't rodding ...

I think I need a life coach or something.
