It is as John says - single screw down through the centre of the block, and
the 3 screws into the block to hold the aluminum finishers in place,
trapping the door seal end.  The blocks are covered with a thin black vinyl
material - the same stuff that is on the spare tire hold down blocks in the


And for Joseph:  you were enquiring about the same area on the BT7:  from
memory, I am certain that the carpet piece is cut around the wood blocks.


My BT7 (top -shift tri carb) is all original - all softy trim, carpets.
Tonneau, soft top, and so is a pretty good example of the way the factory
did things.  The car has also been judged in concours at a pretty high gold
level score.


Give me a day or so to get out to the garage (and unpile the car!), and I
will confirm all this for both of you, measure the blocks, and get a couple
of photos.

I need help with another piece missing from my barn find. There is a wooden
block that goes under these trim pieces on a BT7. From pictures on the
internet the blocks looks to be about 2" square. Is there a hole through the
block for a self taping screw that goes though the block, through the
quarter panel horizontal metal bracket and into the wheel arch? Are the
three holes in aluminum trim piece just to secure it and none of them go
through to the wheel arch? What are the dimensions of the wooden block and
how it is installed?



Thanks... Harold
