ahhh, good old tiger seal, fookin brilliant gear. after 24 hours dont attempt to remove them otherwise you will have a fibreglass jigsaw/sideskirt and a black rubbery line forever and ever and ever. good gear but like was said earlier, put some self tappers in the sill and the is an attatchment for a slide hammer and keep slide hammering them out this you get a near enough shape and remove the tappers, then use fibreglass filler to build up where it's low and this will cover the holes the tappers have made. it's actually called bridging filler and use your normal filler 'after' using fibreglass filler to shape it. then get some masking tape and put a line about 1/4 down sill all the way along the length of the sill (scotch brite the sill to take all the 'shiny' off. USE GREY SCOTCH NOT RED OR GREEN. Grey doesn't show through the laquer on a blow in on mettalic paint where the rest are too coarse. Or you can use your pot washing sponge from the sink, the one with a sponge one side and a scourer on the other. also use some panel wipe to get rid of tar spots then paint the sill to where you've masked out with the GRAVI GUARD i suggested this will hide any pin holes you cant get rid of and give the sill some protection from road kill and gravel and stuff then get it painted. bit long winded but it's how i'd do it
