Door Sills

Hi all,

Anyone got any experience of fitting chrome door sills on a classic ?
If so, did you cut the original plastic trim back and stick straight to the metal, or stick them over the top of the plastic trim ?

Also, what type of glue / adhesive did you use ?

Any advice appreciated

Cheers,

Mickey.

my buddy has the sti door sills and they fit pretty nice. he got the sills with the car so i don't know how it was made to stay. i believe it was just double sided sticky tape. I'm actually quite surprised that it has endured this long ~2.5 years without showing any signs of lifting.

I got a set of front door sills sorted out for my Evo - they look real nice too and are purely stuck over the top of the plastic ones - I can send you the link if you are interested as they did them for all makes of car.

I do believe they cos me 20 for the pair and I used a number of higly adhesive small spongey pads to stick them in place - they are stuck down real good and because I am not screwing through the plastic they can be removed at any time

Is that just pure stainless steel ? My friend's sills have some color in the writing (cherry blossom red, etc).

If you get them with the double sided tape on, dont forget to thouroghly de-grease the area first and have a couple of practise goes at lining them up before removing the backing tape. ( Hope I havent taught you to suck eggs) :roll:
