Has anyone found a good source for the A-Pillar Front Inner Insert / Airbag Cover?

I found this: $20


This: $25



And this: $30


Any cheaper solutions?

Had my old ones reupholstered and used double sided 3m tape to keep em in place. Worked perfectly.

$20 is about as cheap as I've seen the black ones. if you're buying a pair you might consider using FCP Euro. they're more expensive but you'll cover the $50 minimum and get free shipping. But more importantly they will then have Lifetime Warranty and replacement should they peel again or breat a tab or two.

I just bought some recently, got them at my local dealer. I think that I paid $23 after CCA discount.

Well....I'm trying to find a cheap solution because I'm experimenting with upholstering and possibly selling complete interior kits on ebay. Have done a few set of B and C pillars with happy buyers who want A pillars as well. A few local inquires for complete kits in black and those damn strips are the bottle neck of the whole process. I can spend some time reinforcing the back side of the fragile A pillars with resin, but the cost of new inset strips makes the project cost prohibitive. People are cheap...

So far I have been upholstering over the cavity and installing a single bolt at the very top which isn't very noticeable. Some are happy with this for a complete black Sedan interior kit for 350 but others would prefer to have the proper covers. So I'm just trying to find better solutions.

How much for any non-black ones? I can reupholster.
