Bit of an update on the clips, the engineers I used took about 7 weeks to make me some prototype clips, they were aweful (See pic of ally and white plastic ones below). So I designed some myself and got them 3D printed to test them, (black plastic ones in pic), they work well so I'm getting 10 pairs made from brass this week, keeping a pair for myself so I will have 9 sets for sale later this week. When I've got them in my hands ready to send I'll let everyone know.

I found a set of the Brass ones that were made in Germany a few years back.
I could send some pics so you could see how those were made.

I may well do that Pete. I think my design is pretty similar.

I am sorry to say but the brass ones are different.

With yours the parcel shelf can jump aout at any bump, the brass ones were a bit narrow at the top and you had to make two flat sides on the turning point, sink it in and when you then closed the hatch it twist and gets stuck in place.

ps. had no chance of taking pics yet :-(

Mine are narrow at the top, they should work fine, the 3D printed ones work well. The clips in the first few pics are not what the final design.
