But requires effort and a bit of skill.

I would have done so.. But I sold my BG... So it's a waste of time for me now.

What I would recommend to any Bg owners.... Do t wait for these things to snap...
Go buy a little DIY fibreglass kit (even bunnings sell them) and lay down a couple of layers of glass on the inside of the A-pillar, making sure that you reinforce the mounting tabs too.

Guarantee you will not have any future problems.

Prevention is the key to not continuously forking out stupid money for a piece of plastic.
I just picked up a set this afternoon. Where can I learn how to re-create these with fibreglass (make a mould) so I can make more of them?

I've never made moulds before.

Hi All,

Does anyone know if the round button Plastic Clip at the top is a generic trim piece / part..?

I have 2 good pillars (not broken/cracked) but the mounting clip (black circle one) that is pushed into the top of the trim to help hold it in place to the a-pillar is broke.

Thanks & Cheers!
