south bend indiana. national studebaker museum, national college football hall of fame, very old notre dame churches, notre dame campus, and some kind of chocolate factory tour that my wife found. headed there in the morning, to return late monday.

Then, I'm taking tuesday off to go to the largest indoor go kart park in michigan with my son. Then, back to the grind on wednesday and half of the day on thursday, then headed out to a church mens retreat thursday afternoon through sunday. so, basically, working a day and a half this coming week.

Very cool! Have a fun week! I'd LOVE to go to that go-kart park!
Can't wait to see pics of those pillars!!

Everyone has a photographic memory; some just don't have film.

Thanks, I posted a link to 7th gen covers from the same seller in my first post! They make them for 8th gen too. These covers are an absolute bargain IMO.

Thanks guys. I am anticipating they hold up well. They don't feel cheap and the finish does not seem likely to scratch easily. They are thin (they need to be) , but not cheap feeling.

They were also simple to install. Clean pillars with glass cleaner, let dry 5 minutes, clean with the supplied alcohol pads, install. One of the best $37 bucks I have ever spent. I actually had the %^&&* pillars painted at the Cadillac dealer when I bought the car because they were scratched. That paint lasted about 3 years and then faded. So, then I painted them myself, and did a B to B- job and lived with that, until they also faded, again, after another 3 years. Since then I have been applying trim shine to the pillars, which is a PITA and gets messed up when they are touched. These black covers are the bomb.

The pillars have been a sore spot for me as they were the only part of the car that actually looked its age (11 years old). Now the pillars look as good as the rest!

I got a nasty looking scratch on one of mindd. when I waxed it, some wax got on it and filled the thing, so it looks even worse now. My car's due for another wash too... the snow left it looking like crap B/

Looks good. Im thinkin of doing mine after I get my tint. Mine are not really faded but they will be noticable with new tint. Them almost look like the window just keeps going and there is no pilar, especially if you have tint. I think some 20% and some of them will be just about what I need.
