Economical repair if you don't need to replace the whole A pillar.

I ordered one for the right passengers side, but it seems that the holes for the machine screws don't align with the original holes. I would think the taper goes to the bottom. If I turn it 180 the holes would align but the taper would be wrong. Anyone ever used these?

Could it be a LH side and be mis labeled?

Looks right to me. Just needs to be flipped over. I don't see a problem.

Thanks, got it figured. A fellow from Moss sent me to this link from 2012.

This is one of those parts you can easily reproduce with some 20 gauge stock so you can easily modify the size of the patch to meet up with good weldable metal. Probably just needed a replacement screw plate because the originals rust out due to water seepage from the windshield and fender. When I repaired my A post, I added a hole at the bottom of the A post to provide a drain hole and increase air circulation to keep the A post dry inside. Also be sure to use a lot of weld thru primer when you close the A post to protect the inside as best you can.
