Issues With A Pillar Holes
« on: April 20, 2017 - 02:42:57 PM »
Working to install a replacement a pillar. I have it laying on the car and I noticed that the holes are not lining up. Maybe 1/2-1" below the cars holes, the square hole is the worst. Top/sides of part are lined up good. I may be able to force it up a bit when I go to put clamps on it.

Anyone ever had a problem like this? It is almost like I will need to recut the square hole and weld the old one.

The A-pillar hole locations changed a couple different times over the years.  Are you replacing the plastic A-pillars on the interior or the actual metal A-pillars on the body?

Sorry the exterior piece, a pillars/a pillar cover.
