    Just when I thought I was wrapping up this project, a few more things came up. The drivers windows regulator is starting to pop, the drivers side c pillar fabric is flapping in the breeze and we got pulled over by the cops for the license plates lights out. In addition, while I had the pan off looking around, I noticed that the high pressure hose for the power steering is starting to weep. I just replaced the windshield cowl because it was starting to crack... The car is starting to show it's age....got the window regulator on order... I guess I'll try gluing the fabric back on and hopefully the license plate/trunk assy. won't fall apart when I replace the bulbs

    Yeah, my b pillars are shot and I desperately need a paint correction session. I also need new diff bushings. How many miles on yours, I'm about to crack 183,000.

    Last black car I will ever own, unless a crazy deal comes along or I win the lottery.

    BP said he pulled all the pillar fabric and nobody even noticed at the reunion, I didn't. I'm thinking of doing the same. Maybe they could be smoothed down and platidiped to match the plastic center console, I'm desperately trying to figure out some sort of solution that no one has thought of and posted about it.

    I pulled the fabric off on the wife's zhp on the b and c pillars.

    It's fine for the time being but it's still not the same material under as the top that peels. My ocd won't let me leave them.

    The rear are not too crazy to replace but the b pillars are expensive.

    As far black, it's a hate it and love it relationship.

    Pull the c pillar fabric and see if you even notice for a few weeks.

    Here are some pics of pillars with no fabric. Granted, pics are under the sun. Inside the car won't be as visible.

    I had an idea. Some people paint the rear deck. What about painting the pillars without fabric ?
