Long story short my cars solid except for the windshield channel lazy glass guys over the years made it so bad i literally removed the windshield by pushing it out by hand. So i need someone parting a 165 thats willing to cut on the pillar and roof side of the channel so i can fix mine! Please help so i dont have to find a parts car!

The windshield and the cowl panels between an ST165 and an ST162 (regardless of trim) are identical. That tells me the ST162 (ST, GT, GT-S) would all have the same "pillars" and "roofside panels" that you seek. Also, if you have corrosion that bad on those items, I'm willing to bet your lower cowl panel is corroded through as well - you best check that closely to determine if you need that replaced too.

All this said, you likely have the items you need close to you, since any ST162 will provide you the same items around the windshield glass area that your ST165 needs.

Right on the fitment unfortunately my area is lacking 4th gens lots of others but no luck so far. as for as whats bad ive already pulled the glass and cleaned the rust areas the cowl is fine the actual pillar and roof surfaces are fine its just the window channel its self thats not so healthy and its not horrible i just dont see the point in patching it up if i can just graft in a new channel thats not pitted to hell if i cant find a donor section ill just have to fab it up
