Best method is to drill a hole and use an M5 dome headed cap bolt.

Bartman, if you've got your car where you can see/measure the studs, could you do my a massive favour and measure the distance of them from the heel board?

It'd be really helpful to know the spacing for me too!

I managed to get the plastic clips from South lakeland Mini Centre, Barrow in Furnace,

did pick them up at a BMC show couple of years ago! if you are looking to replace as

original otherwise as Steve220 suggests.

i have it off the rollover jig at the moment to check door gaps, but once its back on i'll get a diagram together.

the actual plastic clips are fine its the little metal studs they attach too. i swear i have seen them for sale somewhere.

I had the same problem. Couldn't find them anywhere.

 

I was on a factory visit to BMH the other week and there was a full MPI floor standing there with the studs attached. I asked the guy where they get them from and he said "There's a big bucket of them over there if you want to grab a hand full" SO I DID!

 

You need to use a special stud welder to attach them to the floor though (I'll have to hire one or attempt to weld the on somehow...)

I need to go visit them to get some freebies they missed off my floor pan!  

 

James - I don't suppose you've got the measurements? Its holding me back getting the car to paint at the moment.
