I ordered a set of LED lights like woodkrawler installed, but I've still been exploring replacements for the b-pillar lights. I found these today from a 91 and earlier Jetta. Fit the factory hole pretty good.

Those look pretty good. I was able to find a pair of factory originals at the pull-a-part for mine and they still work. The contacts need cleaning, so I'm going to use them until they break and then do the LED swap like you mentioned. Good find.

B-pillar trim and light resto.

Been working on my remaining interior trim pieces, figured I start with the big b-pillar pieces...



I've been obsessing over this B-pillar light. Stock replacements are impossible too find or expensive. I thought using the same Led's woodkrawler used...




but I really wanted something that would snap into the factory hole. I found these VW lights and the fit the hole fairly well...



but I just didn't really like them. I'm not sure exactly what I was looking for, but I was doing a image search on Google and stumbled on this picture...



It's an aftermarket replacement interior light that's marketed for Hot Rods and custom cars. Made by a US company called Euramtec. I found their website and downloaded the spec sheet on the lights. You can see from their measurements it's almost identical to the factory MJ lights...



After about a half hour of searching, I found a site that sells classic car lenses and they had a listing for them. I got both of them for $35 shipped. Compared to the VW lens...



I painted the trim and fitted the new lights...



Mods to the trim was minimum. The height of the new light was perfect, and I had to file about a 1/16 of an inch of material to make them fit length wise. Fitted...



I really like the way they look installed and as an added bonus the function of the new lights is the same as the factory.

UP - on/off with the door
Center - off
Down - on/map light



The finished left panel next to the right...



I used SEM satin black on the panels. This stuff is amazing. Finish is nearly a perfect match to the sheen on the factory panels.
