DanTwoLakes At the risk of over simplification, this is a piece of 3MM PVC foamboard. Literally, two minutes ago it was flat. You heat it until it gets soft and then bend it to whatever shape you want. To get a consistent curve, you should use a form of some kind, and use gloves. I did this with my bare hands. When it cools, it holds the shape you bend it in. If I re-heat it, I can flatten it back down, or make the curve even more pronounced. Now all you do is cut it, shape it, paint it, cover it with vinyl, whatever. It forms beautifully with normal woodworking tools.

itsjusti I would glass it and make it a tunnel/hollow pillar. It will look good painted too and if you use a headliner it will give a nice corner for it to sit flush against. If you arent going to use a headliner take it all the way to roof to close it off.

scaryeyes Yea! Like to see pics of both methods. Just to get an idea of how it could look like. The problem with internet pics, is that they almost never show that area. And the 34 fords glass cars are little rare here in sweden.
Im gonna put in pics how mine looks as soon as im home again.

Dan how bout some pics are even better a video. This has been a real pain area on my cars interior as I have several wires running up the "A' pillar. I have tried several methods but I am not satisfied with them.

bentwings I made aluminum moldings, hammered on a leather bag with sand in it. I also used a shaped piece of wood clamped in a vise to finish hammering. Then I covered it with vinyl and used 2 oval head screws to attach each piece. I think they look like they belong there.

Plan on making each one twice.....the second one is always better.

You can easily anneal the aluminum sheet by blackening it lightly with raw acetylene then cook it off with a neutral flame. Be careful as the aluminum gives no warning before melting. Practice first.

OneMoreTime On the older cars the A pillar is painted body color which is what I would do with a narrow area like that..

Inner liner at A-pillar Ford -34 fiberglass

I would really like to see how you managed to cover the inside of the A-pillar of your fiberglass body. Some will be covered by the window frame, but how does it look arond the door opening? I have less than an inch gap between fiberglass , door to winshield.
Hope u know what I mean.
