A-pillar patch?

I've looked everywhere and can't find the patch I need. Ive got rust in the bottom corner of the windshield on each side. I could probably get by without a patch but its really pitted and i'd rather replace but I can't find a patch. Anybody know where I can get one?

ETA its an 84

Re: A-pillar patch?

You won’t know what you have until you pull the windshield. If you can find a donor cab that would be the best way, if not you will have to do like Robert did and make your parts

Re: A-pillar patch?

HOLY COW that pic wasn't that big on my phone. I cut the seal out from under windshield and scraped and wire wheeled it some more and it actually looks better than the outside

Re: A-pillar patch?

Finally got the pic down to a usable size, the brown you see under the glass is 90% dirt, very light pitting I'll probably take the glass out next week when I can get some help with it

After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.
