Bait and switch??

You go there, find the part, and if it's in good condition you buy it. Not sure where the bait and switch would come in.

☝☝Except in my part of the country, there's maybe ONE salvage yard with ONE Eldorado, and it's usually a late 80's model...

What's wrong with yours? The material coming off?

If the material is separating from the shell, easy fix.

Find another set of pillars in ANY color, remove staples at ends of covers.

Peel off material.

Go to upholstery shop find material and color that matches the closest.

Cut material to shape of old removed material.

Use 3m Heavy Duty trim adhesive, spray on back of material, apply coated material to pillar housings/shell.

Let dry, re staple ends of material back on to shells/housings.

Re install pillar moldings....
