Not sure if this is really the right forum for this, but I can't seem to trace down any of those awful clips for the body side molding clips. And when I tried to remove them, it seemed like the hole was too small for the arch-looking part of the clip to get through. Is it just that the clip was too old and brittle to safely remove? Thanks

They usually break when removed from being old and brittle. Fierostore has them.

The big clips that look like a longhorn cow are a PITA. I bought a pack of 10 of the rectangle clips that are at the front of the door trim. Got them on eBay. 10$. Screw them next to the slot where the longhorns go. Just tight enough that they can still slide up & down. (Use short self tapping screws with shaft diameter smaller than clip hole) Snap your trim on & you're done. Easy to remove if necessary.

When newer, you pushed the molding upward (toward the 'horns') and just popped the molding off with a putty knife or flat screwdriver. Like already said, after 20 years there so brittle, your very likely to break every one of them. I just mask the moldings when repainting. Just takes a few minutes to be careful with the tape.
