I agree about Ford pricing - but its always been like that even 30 years ago. Yes you can find OEM Ford parts for less than Ford list price. Id source a clip like that from a junkyard if at all possible.The rumor is that it seems to Ford that $100.00 in clips is in fact reasonable cost to attach my sill plate.
I have ordered 2 other bags from 2 other sources, both actually listing them in the description as bags of 4. Each bag of 4 cost about $20.00.
Both in Ford packaging btw.
I can't wait to see what shows up next!
