Subject: Door panel clip question: Pads or no pads??

This one has bugged me for awhile... Is it best to leave off the door panel clip rubber pads??? Or use them...?? Sometimes I see them used, Sometimes I don't.... Will the door panel look more flush without them?? Does this even make a difference?? Did all clips have these little rubber pads orignally??? I think so, but I am not sure on this one.. I need a definitive answer.. I don't know whether to leave them off or not... What's the general concensus?????

Thanks,

Charles, You mean that you see door panels just have the pads on the bottom, and not the rest of the panel???? That's kind of a weird practice.. I would figure either with or without...

I've probably removed hundreds of early model door panels and most of the time the padded clips are along the bottom edge. The assembly manual does show a different clip use from the top and bottom.
