Re: master, sills

Hi there and welcome.

I've seen similar problems listed before, and my advice (as was given before), is to get templates made up, then get a metal fabrication shop to make some to those specs.

You can choose the thickness of the metal, and the garage can weld them into place - once painted, no-one should be able to tell they aren't O.E.

That's what they've been doing with vintage cars for years, whatever they cannot obtain, they make.



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
