    Default Citroen DS21 C pillar trims

    I'm currently in the process of having my DS painted and the C pillar trims are in average condition. My car is a DS21 non pallas, so it has the trims with the thick corrugations, rather than the thin ones, or the pallas type.

    I've found a few around, but so far only worse than the ones I already have. I'm actually surprised nobody is reproducing these as it looks like a fairly simple stamping.

    These are the ones I have and I am interested in finding better ones if anyone has any leads.

    Car is coming along quite well so far:

    Mine looked about the same as yours. After pushing out the dents, I had them reanodised at work. Took a couple of attempts, which made them quite thin, but it worked well. In Sydney AAF may be able to help, or other smaller backyard operations. There is a risk however: if they get it wrong, you may lose them completely as they get too thin...

    I think I met your restorer yesterday, Mr Pallas?

    These look great. You've pointed out my concern here though, if they are damaged then I have nothing.
    There is a nice set with the small corrugations on French ebay, but I would prefer to keep the car mostly stock if possible.

    I've bought seat covers and carpets from them, which were well priced and good quality. I know they also do polyester body panels. Not sure about used parts though although I have contacted them to check. Certainly I never saw anything like that when I picked up my seat covers from their premises.

    Bryce,
    I can help with a NOS for one side - have to check which side I have a spare for. Very, very occasionally they do come up on ebay Germany, it took several purchases for me to end up with a set.

    Cheers

    Depending on how original you want to be there is the option of sourcing some earlier car ones. The corrugation on them is thinner and they're usually in better order.

    Has anyone found that over time their c pillar covers have little dents in them? I have this theory that people see a D and they start poking the aluminium and cause little dents! They get very primate and can't understand what they are beholding. If I ever catch someone doing this to my car when it hits the streets they will be in considerable trouble. A bloke came into the shed the other day when I was working on my car and kicked the driver side sill. "They're pretty solid" he said. I felt like belting the twit since there was a sign on the car with look and admire but please don't touch....

    Thanks to Greenblood, I am now the owner of a new set. One side NOS and the other side good used.

    The later DSpecial/Super external C-Pillar trim is very fragile and easily damaged, I'm thinking a thick layer of urethane spread on the inside to fill the grooves might offer some protection?

    Your car is looking really nice Bryce. Happy to have been able help with the trim, a detail that can let a resto down.

    Stunning!!! Love the new colour a real transformation, I'm a big fan of the single colour on the late D. . .

    That's very inspiring Bryce and agree about the colour. It suits the car and really looks great.

    I'm good for my car but I just saw this rather nice Pallas trim for anyone who owns a Pallas DS and wants to replace theirs:
