A Pillar Pod

Not finding a pillar pod that I liked I decided to make my own. I originally had a pillar pod from a Camaro bolted on top of my stock pillar. It wasn't pretty but got the job done.


Here is the Camaro pillar next to mine. You can see how I had it bolted on before by the bolt holes.



And the swap process.









Some Primer and sanding.



Four coats of textured paint.



Some Sating paint and all back up.



There are some areas that could of used a little more detail but for now I'm more than happy how it turned out. One day when I have some time I will take it down and fix those little issues.
JAM and ijordanc like this.

1978 Trans AM
2009 G8 GT
2010 Genesis Track Edition
2005 GTO (Sold but not forgotten)

I'd have to say that looks pretty great. If you hadn't told me it was homemade before i looked at it, i'd have assumed you bought it that way. Very nice work sir!
