SE5a sill repair sections

Yo!

Does anyone know if these are still available through a member on here at all? If not I'll have to make some. Began tackling the rotten out sill saga this morning.

Many thanks,

T

Club traders or do as I did and replace with angle iron - the original U section IMO is just a water trap that leads to rust

are you looking for the chassis sill parts or the body sill inserts, if it's the latter I had some stainless ones made up by a local co for about £25, it's a horribly messy job though.

Cheers for the replies. Its the rotted out steel sections in the body. Chopped them out over xmas. I need to make up the rollover hoop bottoms too so will fab them up at work when it quietens down...Thanks.
