At the end (yes!) of of a complete nut n bolt rebuild of 1989 GW.
Looking for the following small parts to finish:

Rear door armrest in sand
Clip insert in door that accepts armrest screw (2)
Rear door lower woodgrain strip (1)
Front door reflector armrest inserts (decent set a long shot, I know)
Round plugs over floor seatbelt bolts behind front seat (2) in sand

Thanks very much. Great forums that have helped me tremendously.

I don't have any of those parts, but just want to point out that the clip that the armrest screws grab into should be an ordinary "spring nut" that you can buy at most hardware stores or auto-parts stores in the appropriate size for those screws:

You need the reflector inserts for the arm rests correct ? I have 1 or two in storage i dont need from a 89 or 90 doesnt matter theyre the same ,,Theyre not broken.. but the fake chrome is a bit worn out/blackish. Reflector is fine.

Lemme know if youre interested

Thanks for the replies.
I do have two reflector inserts original to the vehicle, but they meet the same description as above: good reflector, but chipped or stripped chromed plastic surround revealing lots of black. Barring a good set being found, if anyone has a good method to restore the look of these (chrome tape, etc.) short of truly rechroming the plastic, do tell.
I'm still looking for the other parts not addressed in the above replies.
Thanks again to this forum.

You provly wont find a good set... never seen them good. Your best bet would be to go to the hardware or autopart store.. get some chrome/reflective paint. Tape off the peice and paint it so itll be shiney again. Thats what id do
