'Bolter
I tried this inquiry a while back , thought I'd give it one more go---

The 1954 and early '55 Chevy pick up trucks had a one piece , curved trim piece that went on the dashboard near the windshield , mounted above the defrost vents. That trim piece depended on a number of triangular clips to prevent it from laying flat on the dash and vents.
Does anyone know where I can obtain those hard to find items? Anything I find in a search looks too dissimilar , can't find the real item. I would not care if they were old and rusted.

Help!

When I took my windshield trim off my '51, I found similar items, but they were formed differently. You might be able to use the ones from earlier trucks if you need more. I plan on forming the few I need from pallet strapping. Here's the profile I posted of those. Might be just an evolution in design.

Pallet strap is a good source of spring steel. Thanks for the tip.
