B Pillar black vinyl replacement??

Thu Mar 05, 2020 2:26 pm

I have a 2016 Sparky EV. The B pillar black vinyl is peeling off and looking ragged. Any suggestions on replacement/repair? Definitely a cheap part by Chevy that I'd rather replace with something better.

I'd attach a pic but can't figure out how....... :-(

I've seen some without it and underneath is body colored paint so you could actually leave it like that or you can buy new vinyl it's called Black Out Tape.

Kermit,
Thanks SO much for the response. I've tried to find those parts without success.

For anyone else who needs to do this, I found this "how to" PDF on the NHTSA website.

Great resource in that PDF.

If you don't mind can you take a picture after you remove the vinyl so I can see what the car looks like without it?
