    I'm slowly making my way through the little jobs that needs doing on Audrey since most of the big jobs are done (for now).

    One little annoying job is the B pillar on the passenger side.
    Someone tried breaking in by shoving a screw driver (I assume) in the top right corner of the passenger door and tried to bend the top of the door out to get in.
    They never got in but damaged the door, B pillar and the little bit of plastic next to the B pillar.

    How do you replace the B pillar?
    Can the plastic be replaced at the same time?

    The metal bits should be ok.
    Just the bolts rounding off of the plastic clips at the bottom snapping.
    If you are able to get the plastic bits off, bolts, clips/hinges all in one peace with out breaking.
    I'll have them from both sides please mate.

    As for the plastic bits, I got no idea how that comes off.
    No idea if its one single bit in that corner or a massive unit that goes round the door.
    Interested to know.

    The C pillars?

    The are pop riveted in.
    One of mine has started to bubble at the bottom.
    not wanting to remove them. No idea how they are removed or how they effect the window and rubber.

    I removed those rear ones on my breaker, fairly easy, just drill out the pop rivets and remove.

    Not too bad so, was thinking of getting all these pillars wrapped on mine.
    Lots of little scratches and swirls
