My power antenna has not worked in a good year, so I found a new one.
But wait, I also found something else. Hmmm, what could I be planning to do with these?

I roughed in the holes.

Then cleaned them up a bit.

And got it all lined up.

Now, I still have a ways to go here. Need to clean up the holes a bit more, then glue them in place. then glass it all up and Bondo it smooth. I will then texture paint it and get it to match my car. If all goes well, I may have this in my car Wednesday.

Now, I'm sure your wondering, Why does he have extra A-pillars? Well, I'll tell you why. Because I plan to make extras. Right now I have 2 96-99 and 1 2000+ If you want one made, just shoot me a PM. These will be $75 for a 2 pod, and $85 for a 3 pod plus a $25 core charge that you will get back as soon as you send back your old A-pillar. The only thing you will need to do is paint it to match your cars color.
