the door panel push on pins on my 74 k10 broke. has anyone tried to repair these with success. the material is getting brittle and the pins broke while repainting. also the pins with the nut on them twisted off during removal. any thoughts. thanks.

It’s unclear which pins you’re referring to… the trim? The plastic fasteners?
New push in fasteners are available through many vendors.

the molded pins that the trim of the door panel hooks to with a speed nut.

In the absence of pins, 3M trim and emblem tape works really well

Door seal adhesive would be a mistake, it often loses adhesion in extreme heat and cold.
