Thanks for the paint info! I got the car used, and the best to my knowledge it came with the pinstripes.
As for the c-pillars, I just kinda jimmied them on. I read somehwere on an old post that they said they couldnt slip the top bracket under the rear window. I didnt seem to have a problem. All brackets are set under the window...you just kinda have to play with it, work from the top down. Yours sounds like one or two or more of the brackets arent set under the rear window. Unscrew it from the door frame and slip them off and try putting them back on. It also may be possible that if they were involved in an accident the brackets may have broken. One word of caution...do NOT grab the top and apply pressure!! I have a nice deep gash in my fingers from it, quite sharp. Oh well, NOW i can say ive put blood, sweat, and tears into the car:-) Thanks again!
