You will get better response to this question over at the main MGB & GT Forum.

You can tell where the clips/pop rivets are by seeing where the moulding is tight against the bodywork. The very front, very back and middle of the door are held in place by a 10 x 32 unf screw and nut. (Usually?? Sometimes more screws are used!)
Remove the nuts. The other clips can be released by applying downward pressure above the clip, with the palm of your hand, whilst pulling out the bottom of the SS strip. If that doesn't work, protect the paint with tape and tap the moulding down with a block of wood and hammer, working from one end to the other.

As noted over on the B & GT forum is a better place to ask but an even better place to ask is Google. For instance I asked Google "removing mgb mouldings" and the 1st hit was this. There are other discussions, tips and suggestions you could read and if your Google works like mine then an Italian translation should be available.

I think you mean clips and rivets?? Anyway click on #11 here - that's the fitting kit. Whilst you can use your own rivets the round clips are unique to fit the mouldings so if you can't reuse your old ones you need these.

thank you very much for your interest, I meant anglo parts kit 11 ... there are 50 rivets and 6 small plates with nuts .... so I think there are only 1 flat with molding nut and this is much simpler. .confirm? .. thanks for everything and have a good day.

I'm not sure what you're asking. In #3 Allan explained how each mould is attached normally. If you click on #21 in my link you'll see 6 are needed - 1 per mould.
