'57 door panels

I'm tearing into my doors to replace the cracked glass in my passenger door. I finally opened the box of new door panels I bought over 20 years ago. Included were two matching strips that are 10" long with a beaded edge. Can't figure out where they go. I think they would work perfectly around the arm rest from the chrome to the end. A nice finishing touch, but I can't find a photo anywhere that shows this garnishment. It would be a nice finishing touch if I can't find the original usage.

Hope these pictures show clear enough where they go. View attachment 14039 View attachment 14040

Thank you. The door panels had been messed with before I bought it and would never would have considered that placement as I had nothing to go on. I'm surprised they didn't do the same trim on the arm rests. Would have added a nice finish seeing as they spent so much time on other trim.

On the subject of door panels, I have a 55 and I'm trying to locate about a dozen Clips to reattach the door panel. Does anyone know where they are available?
 
What is the best way to attach my old aluminum trim to the new door panels. I built mine from scratch using the original panels as a template many years ago when I was young and dumb and just patched it together. Staple gun? I had used tacks and bent the ends over on the back side.
