C5 Z06 exterior plastic A-Pillar trim - Corvette Recycling

So my passenger's side exterior A-Pillar trim is cracked (which I guess is pretty typical for Z06's). Dealerships charge around $140+ for each side. I was searching around on the Net and found Corvette Recycling has these for $59.99 in Excellent (5 star) condition.

Has anyone ordered from them? If so, what was their experience?

Re: C5 Z06 exterior plastic A-Pillar trim - Corvette Recycling

I have had very good relationship with them. I bought my salvaged 04 ZO6 from them and had traction control problems while driving it home. They came and loaded the car, took it back and sent it to the local dealership in SLC and had it fixed. They even dealered back to me over 150 mi one way.
I have bought and sold parts to them, some small parts they even didn't bother to charge me for or shipping.
I consider Doug (owner) a very honest man to deal with.

That's one hell of a recommendation. Thanks for helping another Z06 owner.

Hmmm...I'll have to bookmark this. Mine is cracked on the passenger side. This will be a spring time fix up for me.

Good to know mine isn't the only one. Mine are cracked on both sides.
Anybody have a clue why they crack?

Re: C5 Z06 exterior plastic A-Pillar trim - Corvette Recycling

I just noticed my passenger side trim is cracked. It may have come this way, and I did not notice, but that is hard to believe.

How hard is it to replace? Any videos on this?

Thanks for any input.

Very easy, most of the interior trim is only snapped on, just be careful and you will be able to figure it out without a video.

Thanks, but this is the exterior trim, from the bottom of the windshield to the back of the roof. I think it is probably double sided tape, but would like to confirm, before I tear things up too much. :D
