Headliner Screws and Clips Source + ???'s

My 77 J10 did not come with a headliner installed. I now have a headliner, and all the trim pieces, I do not have the hardware, however. I only have 2 clips for the j channel that attaches the J channel to the cab looks like I need 8 total. The only place I can find them is here (part 7) but for almost $10 a piece which sounds crazy: https://www.factorychryslerparts.com...ssembly=567772

Anyone have another source for these?

Also I have the front metal trim piece that holds up the front of the headliner. In the cab brow where the trim piece attaches there are slots, but screw holes in the trim piece. Do screws just go into those slots? Is there suppose to be a clip for the slots? If its just screws anyone know what size? Thanks for your help!

Here are photos of the clips I am looking for and the slots in the brow for the front trim piece:

Not sure what I'm looking at but the first pic looks like where the sunvisors would mount. Most interior metal trim I've had was just predrilled along with the body and the trim is mounted with counter sunk sheet metal screws avail at any hdw store. My J-trucks all had cardboard head liners that pretty much just press/snapped in. if you're looking for odd trim clips either below or external trim check with a local collision/body shop they'll have bins of various style trim, molding clips. I don't recognize anything your pics, sorry.

Sorry, here are some better photos and descriptions:

[IMG]

1st photo is far away view of the inside of the cab, at the top of the windshield on the cab metal you can see the slots in the metal that correspond to the metal trim pice that hols the headliner to the front of the cab.

[/IMG]

2nd photo is zoomed in on the slots to give you an idea of what I am talking about. Do i just run a screw threw that or is there a clip for that slot?

[IMG][/IMG]


3rd photo is the clip that is on the j channel that attaches to the cab and holds the sides of the headliner up. I only have 2 of those clips and need 8 total.

Hope this is more clear. Thanks for your help!

slotted holes

the oblong slots in the roof area above windshield are all there is, no clips
( is makes it easier to mount the headliner trim,...)
as long as you are in the slot with the screw, you are good.

phillips screws were used from factory

as far as size i believe it is a #6 or #7
total length = 3/4" including head of screw
1/2" is the length of threaded part only

the oem screws have self drilling tips

and the head of the screw is dished or angled in to fit snug into the trim hole

Awesome that is incredibly helpful thank you SOLSAKS! Now just need to find the clips for the J Channel. Really don't want to spend $70 on 6 clips, seems outrageous.
