I know Roseville has them. I need a pair also but haven't done anything yet.

I didn't know anyone was making good ones. I just thought the junk Palcos were available.

No such thing as nice ebody a pillar repopped trim. Even Roseville would rather not sell it to you unless you insist.

I have blue Palcos if you need them. I repainted my old ones and put them back on.

Wow, that surprises me. I would have thought there would be good reproductions of these in this day and age. Originals are almost always broken or damaged in some way. I guess the search is on for some good original pieces.

So? Has anyone come out with a quality reproduction A-pillar trim for e-bodies? I just had my headline redone and it looks great. I ordered up a new pair of white a-pillar plastic pieces from Legendary. I got them today. They are made by accu-form plastics. They stink. They don't fit at all and I'm afraid to work with them as the plastic is very brittle. I put my black ones back on and they fit great. So maybe I'll just dye them. Thoughts? Thx

Hi All,

After getting requests to make the E-body plastic interior a-pillar trims, I initially didn’t want to make them because there were others already made.
What I didn’t know was how poorly they fit. Once I saw how poorly they fit I started the project.

About 2-1/2 years ago we released our E-body plastic interior a-pillar trims.
It took 2 years of development to get them correct, but I wasn’t going to stop short and release them without being correct.

Ours fit, I promise. We haven’t had any come back or any complaints.

We make the 1970 to mid 1971 version, with the lower hole close to the windshield, and we make the mid 1971 and later version with the lower hole more centrally located.

So while there are 2 other manufacturers of these pillar trims out there that don’t fit like they should, please don’t lump ours in with them.

Thanks, Tony

Tony, those other comments were from 2013. Don't look like they were talking about yours. Mike

I picked up a set of Tony's, dyed them, and installed in my TA. They are great. Fit well, pliable to get them where they need to be, all holes lined up. Highly recommend and thanks Tony for producing a quality repo item.
