    The b pillar is the bit between the front side window and the rear side window(the back of the front door - if that makes sense!).

    I'm not sre what the GSi one looks like but I'd imagine its just a black cover.

    There are a few different styles on the GM parts list.

    You can do something similar with wide electrical tape and a pair of scissors.
