Do the clips have a name?

What do you technically call the plastic clips that insert in these type of stamped cut out or holes allowing you to screw something to it?

The trim kit around re headlights requires me to screw in to these holes, and I'm not sure what to ask for when I'm calling around to auto supply places.

TIA

You will have a very hard time finding the right ones from a generic auto supply store, I would just order them from RN or even better RDS for a few bucks.

Other than pounding out the dents and installing these clips, is anything else required to put headlamps surrounds on an ex-mod truck?

I'm in the thick of it but AB sold me the kits. You could stay with the MOD lights but I opted to but the NAS lights too for the front. Just need those clips, the lights and a quick require of 8 wires.

The only wild card is the headlamp bowls which I was TOLD by AB needed to be changed too, but as far as I can tell there is zero reason to do this.
