Default Best source for small interior trim clips etc

Like many of you with multiple 240s, I have about two dozen little things I "need" to finish off my cars. I would appreciate referrals to the parts sources that have the most complete range of interior clips and doo-dads to spare me hunting across 18 different websites for multiple $5 orders.

Gracias

Dave

Ask in the Wanted section of the Classifieds here. I've got loads of little bits for 240s, and I'm sure quite a few others do too.

Ha!

Here I am delicately taking things apart, putting all the screws in the glove box (if there is one) and some a-hole uses a hammer on a late model 240 dash because they didn't have the right Torx bit??

Noobs, everyone knows to bring their Torx bits in case of late models.

They don't care because it isn't theirs...I could have used a few items at my local PnP, but NO, some douche canoe decided to Wreck-it Ralph their way through a part removal...

Also check Volvopartslisle - they are usually pretty good in price and get some Volvo Classic parts from Sweden. I ordered some NLA clips from them, took them two months to get them but they were pretty affordable.

Shipping can be killer though (usually $7 no matter how little you order) so try and get some stuff together...
