Head light bezel spring clips

Hello
I am currently working on making a punch and die to make headlight band clips for Durant and Star car.
Please let me know who needs some.
I am making them from 301 stainless spring steel.

Regards
Franz

Just to confirm, I need 16 of them. This is enough to do 2 sets of headlights.

Re: Head light bezel spring clips

Franz, I'm sure I'll need some clips for my '23 Star. Could you post a pic of what you are making so we can compare our items?
Thanks,
Don

Great timing! I just broke one and am down to two on each light. I'll take 6 assuming they will work on the drum style lights on my 25 STAR

Franz,
I'll take 8 if they will fit my 23 Durant drum type headlights. I tried to make some sometime ago and gave up. Thanks for your efforts.

Re: Head light bezel spring clips

That's great! I've been trying to figure out what to do for my rings. I need a full compliment of 8 (I assume there are 4 on each, the rings I have, have about a dozen holes in each) for my '25 Star Touring.

Re: Head light bezel spring clips

Franz,
I compared a sample from my 23 Star and it is the same. It will also be the same for the Model F's.
Put me down for 24 of your clips.

Re: Head light bezel spring clips

Hello to All, I have been a member of the club for many years but this is my first visit to this forum.
I am presently having the headlight rings replated for my 25 Star and could use 8 of those retainer clips soon. If and when they are available I would appreciate an e-mail from anyone. Also, does anyone know where to find the original colors that the Star Cars offered? What color was the Continental engine that was used in the Star in 1925? Any help appreciated. Greg Krueger

thank you for everyone letting me know how many
clips are needed. I have almost finished machining
the punch and die set. So far I have spent about
15 hours just machining.
But I am almost there.
I will post a few pictures when it's done.
