glass chanel repair

hi guys, i'm repairing some rough spots on the rear window and windshield lip of my 66 impala the problem is that a few of the soft spots are around the studs that hold the molding clips on. if i have to replace a section of the channel that has the stud how do i replace them? is it OK to leave a few out? or do they make replacements that i can rivet back in? i'm not sure what to do. thanks in advance for your input.

i thought of that but the stud looks like the head of a nail with a flat head on it. do you need that "hat" on the stud to hold the clip?

You could probably grind down the OD of the rivet. I usually just let the rivet head ride on top of the little plastic goodie. There is usually room for it.

window trim clip retainer pins

I have used sheet metal screws to hold the clips on. The rivits sound to be about the same. The only bad part of either of these is that they have to be put in before the window goes in.
