Beauty Ring Retaining Clip Pics?

I've searched high and low for pics of the clips that retain the beauty rings in the pic. 5 per ring, right? At any rate, if you have a pic of the actual clips, and / or how the clips are attached, I'd appreciate it...

No pics yet, but I have set of the impossible to find clips.

PM me a very good offer and I'll sell them.

If that's the case, the clips are no longer unobtainium. They are for sale online and I'll order a set!

Well, I ordered the set and I'll see what comes of it. If it doesn't work out, we'll, more wall art I guess!

Some quick measurements... Anyone else have an OEM set to compare?

Here are some measurements...















I am a bit busy dismantling this...

So the back story is that supposedly jeep beauty rings are the leftovers of chevy's 57-58 Cameo trucks. Some have suggested it was the Apache line for Chevy... But at the swap meet I got these from 4 different Chevy guys tried to buy them off of me. One of the old guys brought out a magazine from back in the day and the Cameo wheel covers looked identical to Jeeps. Rather than sell the rings, I opted to look for a set of 57-58 Chevy Cameo beauty ring retaining clips.

I found them at Jim Carter Classic Truck Parts Online. While I did order a set, I have not had the time to check whether or not it'll work inbetween helping a buddy move, tearing apart a doaner rig and getting ready for my daughter's birthday... Besides, the panel is essentially stripped and sanded for paint and I am in the process of taping it up for paint!

All someone needs to do is take some measuremets of their jeep version and post them up for comparative purposes.

Cool!
I'll be anxious to see if they work! I have an NOS set of beauty rings destined for my Panel, but don't have the clips!

I think your money is safe!!

I went and looked at the website, and at $6 each, they'll cost more than I paid for the NOS rings!

That's too funny- one of the last guys to try to buy the rings off me said, "now that you know they're really Chevy, they'll cost you more."
