They are Chuck, from MiniSpares, but a very poor fit.

Have you had the doors re skimmed? If so it is possible the original skin has been left on the top lip as this usually rusts onto the frame.
Many re skimmers can't be bothered to grind them off (probably scared they might lose the frame completely at the top?)
This means the fixng clips are not wide enough to clip over the now extra thick lip.
I ended using a clear silicone to "glue" mine on. They are still there after three years!
Similarly you can "glue" your bonnet spear if the threaded studs are missing (the spear won't rattle nor will the door chrome !)

These are new doors with no clips on, I was going to buy the new clips and studs from MiniSpares after I've found some stainless trims.

New doors? For an Elf/Hornet? Where from?
