Default Rear “C pillar” 31 Tudor

Help, I have to rebuild the bottom of a severely rusted bottom of both of the rear pillars of my 31 Tudor. I would greatly appreciate a picture (profile and straight on) of one. Or a sketch with measurement for The holes. Thank you, Gary

I don't know what a C pillar is on a Tudor. If the door hinge post is the A pillar, the door latching post the B pillar, then where is the C pillar?

I didn’t know what else to call the post/pillar on the Tudor sedan. It is the one that defines the back part of the rear quarter panel window. As a matter of fact the window channel is attached to it. If it is known by another name please let me know. The bottom is attached to the subrail by 3 rivets but mine are completely rusted away. Either I will try Berts or fabricate the bottom part myself. Thank you

OK, now we the problem. Since that area will be covered by the back seat, I would weld/fabricate the base of your C-pillar and rivet to the subframe.

Mike, thank you for the input. Even if I were to get a picture of the bottom area it would be a problem to manufacture anything close to the original.

Thank you so much for your help. I sent you an email with my needs. The biggest thing I need is a good picture of what the bottom of the brace that runs from the the roof thru the wheel well to the subrail looks like. I would like to rebuild mine, if I can. Also I need exact measurements on where it will mount to the subrail. Mine is rusted out completely.
