What is needed to remove and convert an 80 Malibu Landau side windows and trim to the look of the plain coupe?

You need:
left and right quarter glass for non landau
B pillar molding/trim for non landau
lower quarter glass exterior trim for non landau (this goes on before the glass)
The interior B pillar trim for non landau
Remove the additional metal piece that is welded to the B pillar
and remove all the studs and clips that hold the landau trim around the top.

Also will need non-Landau sail panels (upper C pillar, above package tray)

Are the parts available (landau to coupe conversion) on the aftermarket or are the parts only available used? Either way, what/who are the sources?

The only things available new are the interior upper b pillar trim and the exterior lower glass trim. Everything else would have to be sourced used.
Thanks, I'm going to check with Dixie Restoration and see what all they have as well.
