We are members of this forum and we see so many people who are uninformed blasting the pillar seals that we make. People who have not bought them and really don't know what they are made of. We wish you would take the time to see our current website news about the seals.
Thanks,
Pat and Barb

I don't think anyone on this forum has based this product either, I think there were just some concenrs about the material being hard plastic. However, it has been clarified on the website that they are not hard PVC, but a slightly more flexible ASA.  From the website:

These aren't the original rubber pillar seals that were put on the cars when they were built. These are ASA, not PVC.They are slightly flexible and ultra UV resistant. They fit on our 1976 S&H 2 door hardtop and  our 1972 Gran Torino Sport Fastback. We have installed them on our cars, for two years now, and they look and work great! We don't worry about the UV resistance because they are behind closed doors. They were originally named QUARTER LATCH PILLAR SEALS. Our seals replace the original pillar seals with the number D20B-6528183-AA



A pair of pillar seals include the right passenger and  left driver's side of the car. The price for a pair of pillar seals  is $96.90, which includes tax and S&H. We are a small shop. We take  personal checks only. Please make out the check to Pat Kriel Machine Shop LLC.  Our mailing address is listed on the last page. Please include your phone number on your check in case we have questions. We do NOT accept paypal. Sorry. Please allow 2-4 weeks for delivery. Email or call us if you have any questions before you order. These pillar seals are for two door cars only.



Below is a picture of the body plug that covers the 1 7/8 hole below the pillar seal.  The outside diameter is 2 1/2, which is slightly oversize. The body plugs are made from flexible 3D printed material. The price for a pair of body plugs is $19.95, which includes tax and S&H. We have tried ordering these plugs from two different catalogs. They didn't fit like the original ones. They are just a little too small. So..try ours instead.

Definitely getting these pretty soon. Thank you for going through the trouble to make these, since they are unobtainium!
