Windshield Molding lower clips

Ok, so I need to start getting my windshield molding back on.
The bottom clips seem to be a two piece type clip, a metal clip that is riveted to the body and a plastic piece that goes into the molding then snaps into the clip that is riveted below the windshield....is that right?
Anyway the plastic pieces on mine are ALL broken and don't seem to be available.
I will have to hit the junkyard, how are these clips released from the molding?

LMC Truck does sell the lower clips but they do not include the plastic piece.

i don't remember exactly.
i do recall having an understanding after looking through one of Steve83's threads/ SM pages.

i THINK i might have even bought some old clips from him, but its been so long i could be wrong on that too.

No. The posts are welded or riveted to the body; the metal clip clips onto 2 posts. Follow the links in this caption:

You'd have to un-bend all the crimps that keep the tabs in position along the trim to be able to slide them. Find a lower trim with good tabs and don't break them. I prefer the '94-96 black trim, but I just hate shiny stuff.

Which crimps do I need to un-bend?

Have you looked closely at the part you removed?

No, not really. The guy doing my body work took the molding off when I wasn't there...asked him to wait for me...then handed me a bunch of broken plastic pieces

Then I'd let HIM replace it. He wanted to handle it alone - LET HIM.
