Post by Griff55 »

Hi all, just starting to dive into my '65 resto. Could anybody tell me is there a full a pillar available anywhere?
I've found the lower repair sections, but no full pillars.

Many thanks in advance

Which pillar are you seeking?
Is it damaged?
Maybe find a body cut to unstitch?
There was one for sale on here a KF one...without looking they were made for an early model though...maybe 55.
AUTOCRAFT sell replacement pieces of the A post....
Upper and lower sections. May have to make have made the missing pieces.
On the 64 had to replace sections around the hinge mounts and at the very bottom.
Reason I know is my 62,needs one to be worked on..
Front panel off...rebuild front panel back on job...

AHS stock some KF items now..try looking there and phoning and asking...but maybe ask on technical thread if the KF S post fits 65 without too much work...

It's the offside front pillar. Looks like the bus has had a good shunt at some point and a very bad attempt at panel beating on the pillar all the way from top to bottom. Got the repair sections en route. Just thought I'd make life easier/quicker by just whacking a new one in.
Thanks all, I'll look it all up now
