Plastic window trim pop-rivets

I have searched...here and elsewhere yet unable to find replacement pop-rivets made of plastic which are used to attach the side window trim to the inside.

Has anyone found an answer or source?

Thanks!

The hardware department at the big box home centers may have a selection of automotive plastic fasteners. Have you looked there?

Ya know...I haven't.... I am worried little things like that will end up costing dozens or hundreds $$$$$... honestly, I have not specifically looked only for those....

No sweat. It's one of the places I browse when I'm solving a weird problem, along with auto parts stores and Harbor Fright.

Try Autozone or similar auto parts chain. I bought a miscellaneous rivet set there and it came with some plastic rivets.

Try McMaster-Carr. Their website is mcmaster.com. Plastic pop rivets are available in off-white and black. Likely much cheaper than the auto store if you need in bulk. This is a good source for many fasteners and supplies.

CR Laurence or DK Hardware are other sources for fasteners that are not found in HD or Lowes.
