Default Trim and moulding

Im trying to replace all of the trim, moulding, and clips around the doors and the back glass.
I started to take off the 1/4 panel glass trim and the retaining clips broke. Now im stuck with the trim missing, and I have looked everywhere online to find the trim and moulding, but no luck.
Can anyone tell me where I can get the clips and moulding.

Your probably going to have to get them from the dealership, give Jeff Watson a call, he will give you a good price. 866-739-9470

I tried the dealership and dont have all the tirm moulding I need, He told me he found it, but the parts guy told me that they dont even make some of the moulding and the parts he could get was gonna run me around 400 dollars. Thats rediculous. If this is the case then how to ppl completly restore the MKIII. Someone here need to start a catalog for are supras. Like a yearone or something

Hehehe, always performance minded, as for the purse, more like 15lbs, it leaves bruises, lol.

Well when I got a quote for the hatch and side window trim without going to Jeff I got a $990 price tag, so $400 inst that bad. In the case of people restoring their MKIIIs, the ones who can, just pay the price or get a parts car. If someone did start production of restoration MKIII parts, that would just be great, but sadly the reproduction company's probably do not think people want to restore a import so they think there is no market. Plus it would be very difficult to basically start building Supras again since the "molds" haven't been in use since the early 90's.
