Installing two tone cab trim???

Hello, need some assistance on how to install the trim on the back of my 72 C10 cab. Do I install the clips onto the truck first or do I install the clips onto the trim piece and then install onto truck?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

If your talking about the trim below the rear window you install the little plastic clips on the little nail heads then the trim snaps into that its not hard. just make sure you use good clips.

If your truck didn't have the nubs sticking out to put the clips on, you can put the clips on with screws then place the trim on the body. [Clips go on body first]

I would recommend that you put the clips on the body first and then install the trim piece. I just had to do this with my truck to replace the fender flares.
