Anyone out there that has a MGB GT that is apart.
I'm looking to buy the side rail and sail pieces or,
if someone could trace the pieces so I can use as a pattern in making a set of new pieces.
My project is stripped of those pieces so I don't know how to make them.

Thanks in advance!

By sail pieces are you referring to the C pillar interior panels? If I recall, the side rails above the doors are just glued on vinyl. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

Because I've never owned a GT, I really don't know what to ask for. I'm making the assumption that there is
a fiberboard (Masonite like) that the vinyl gets glued to.

A pillar is just vinyl glued to pillar?
B pillar same as above?
C pillar or some call them the "sails" have a backer shape I know.
The main ceiling area can be glued to a panel and then glued to the metal roof.

NOTE: I have the rear hinge cover.

I know the "a" pillar is a vinyl covered piece that screws in. I don't recall what the "b" pillar has. "C" pillar is like the "a"-vinyl covered panel that screws in. If nobody closer to you responds, (cheaper shipping probably), I've got a driver side "a" pillar in black, and 2 c pillars in grey. I know one has a slight tear on it from the hatch pivot hitting it, I don't recall if they both do.

A and B pillars are a fiberboard piece with a vinyl cover. The headliner is either glued to the ceiling or a separate panel that fits in above the cant rails. Headliners were glued in until about 1968ish.

On my '69, the "A" pillar has a masonite type panel that is vinyl covered. Soory I don't have a pic of it. The "B" pillar is wraped directly with vinyl, as is around the rear quarter window, including the rear edge of that window. There is a "sail panel" as you call it that fits up to the vinyl on steel rear window.

Send me an email with info for contact, just made a set for my '69 GT. I made a paper pattern i'll copy for you. I call it the "C" pillar. You can use fiber board, plywood, add some i/4" foam liner and cover with vinyl, I used mariner style for UV protection sold at "Joanne" fabrics. klossra@centurylink.net Cheers mate
