So just pulled my 88 TC out today to wash and noticed that the passenger side trim piece around the cornering lamp is gone. No idea where it fell off, so does anyone have the trim piece missing in this photo they would sell? Preferably black, but will take what I can get. Thanks

I have 3 that need work. But you still have the brackets. I'll ship you one for $20.

can you define "work", and can you send some pics of them to 315-292-2218. Thanks man, I appreciate the reply.

Racer, you still have these? I'm still interested. Thanks

Today I noticed the same trim piece on my 87 TC looked a little loose at the tire end although when I touched it, it fell off.  Have the same hardware showing as you do.  Looks like the tabs that fit in the bracket holes are all missing. I could probably use weatherstrip adhesive to put it back on but really not too keen on that solution?

Let me now what you ended up doing.

Thanks

If the brackets are still complete, you can use JB Weld to reattach them to the plastic molding. It works great.

This is what is left on the car and the molding. I'm not familiar with how these attach... do the brackets come off the car and then JB weld them to the molding?  Just wasn't sure how to remove/replace the brackets.

Hey 50 Racer, it looks like we started a trend with these pieces falling off. Hit me up in a PM with your choice of payment and I will send it to you. I still need that passenger side piece. Thanks

Yes indeed, I checked the drivers side and it's loose and ready to fall off too!  I'll be looking at that tomorrow!  I'm hoping that the piece just unbolts from behind.  Looking on ebay I see there is one NOS drivers side available but can't really see well in the photos the attachment posts.  The one that fell off doesn't have anything that resembles the photo.  I'm hoping that the brackets will jb weld to the trim and attach from the backside.
