Have faded B-Pillars? Hate the idea of chrome overlays (like me)? Here is another potential solution. They have them for both 7th and 8th gens. I know there have been a lot of posts in the past re: complaints about fading B pillars. Hopefully this helps ......

I just ordered a set for our 01 Caddy. I have been looking for black overlays for a while and just learned about these from another site. Historically, all I could find was chrome, stainless, or CF. I will report back on quality when they arrive.

don't worry Matt, I will be sure to take pictures.... though, depending on the directions, I may have to wait till it gets a little warmer.

I wonder if they will oxidize easily, or if they will be fairly resistant to that. That is my experience with shiny surfaces not covered in clearcoat is that they get that rainbow effect from oxidization. That has yet to be seen of course. If they stay clean, I may have to pick up a set.

I hate the chrome- there's a "queens car" at school that has dents ALL OVER with 'em on and I hate the look. Mine are getting a little nasty, but the rear quarter-wiindows have that plastic around them and it looks like I have actual Dry-rot or something... looking for something for that too...

They arrived last week. Installed earlier today. But, I am going on vacation. I will post pics later next week. They are great. Worth every penny.

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.
