I'm missing the two quarter-turn plastic rivet's/clips that hold the driver's side plastic shield around the brake booster that attaches the shield to the bulkhead and the strut tower.

MF'ers flew like fireworks when I was trying to remove this shield during a repair. I lifted the car and pulled the skid plates/ splash guards, and wasn't able to locate them. The job also required pulling the intake manifold, so I looked there too. So I've run to my wit's end looking for the darn things.

I've looked on Amazon, McMaster Carr, Aliexpress, general google searches on obscure fastener retailers and cannot find this style clip anywhere.

I don't have a part number, so that might help

They are 1/4 turn finger twist nylon rivets with a spade on one end that engages with some spring clips. The only picture I have of them is here (I try to photo-document my repairs).

Anyone know where to find a couple of these?

I literally joined this forum to find this part. And sure am glad I joined, kinda thankful I lost them.
