I bought new window felts for my '57 Dodge wagon, from Restoration Specialties but I don't see a way to attach them. These are the ones that got on the inside of the door (not on the window frame). Should I just drill holes and forget about the clips or use adhesive?

I asked the same question in May 2017 and got several answers including rivets and screws. I ended up using rivets that I subsequently made black with a felt tip marker.

The inners were held in by staples originally.

I bought a roll of stainless steel wire and made my own staples. I then installed them in the original holes. Time consuming, but it worked fine for me.

Thanks guys for your input. I bought a kit from Quirey who bought out Gary Goers. That should take car of affixing them to the doors (clips) for window frames I'll use screws or maybe rivets. I think trying to duplicate the staples is beyond me
