    check your local mom&pop type hardware store, you'll need countersunk machine screws, or check ebay
     
  3. I presume then that the steel strip is still on the inside & you are referring to the stainless strip on the outside. I had one apart a couple years ago, I seem to remember having to go up under the dash (inside the car) to remove a nut to get the rest of it to come apart. I will take alook this afternoon and refresh my memory & reply again. :D

    Actually the center trim on the outside has the screw, or threaded rod, attached. The inside are hollowed and threaded, long slotted screw headed type mates to the outside threaded rods. The inside screw over the outside threads. Man, I hope I was able to describe this for you.

    On my car it slide onto the rubber then connected to the bottom which was screwed in... That sounds a little off but that is the simpliest way I could explain.
