     The original factory 3500S  moulding clips are a unique plastic  item 
that has a plastic tapered pin you drive in to hold them . Nothing else 
really works or is the same . Contact me directly; I may have another set of 
NOS originals; I sold some to Albert.I think a 1/8 inch bit will drill them 
out, without enlarging the hole,as it may be slightly larger . You may call 
me tollfree 1 877 524 7278, or dial  1954JAGUARS. email is 
jaguru at bellsouth.net  . I will put these on my eBay store, Old English Motor 
Company, with photos when I find them.
     I always use hammerite, or actually hammered finish black, by 
Rustoeleum, which I buy from Home Depot. not original, but always looks 
better.It is useful on many things, as its' texture hides flaws, and it 
remains semi-glossy for a long time. I use silver hammered, on silver items, 
same reason.  James Dean, Ft. Lauderdale
