With the thicker strip I just glued it in and using my files i was able to get the shape back in. That was when i added the smaller strip for the drip rail.
This belongs to a friend of mine down under and both A-pillers we're broken.

Someone is sending me a pillar with a bit of roof material attached for the repair.

This one was "easy", as the reissue '70 Impala kit that gave up it's pillars was from the same tooling as this '69 Impala promo:
This one was bad, very brittle from sun damage. Needed a scratchbuilt pillar and the drip rails replaced.
