Rusty Sills... very bad...

Bericht door Saffles »

So.. i've got the engine working, the cooling working, various others like the CD changer...

Today i took off the plastic sills under the doors to look at the corrosion. It's bad... really bad. Rust everywhere, holes everywhere, bits of metal falling off on the ground everywhere...

Are there any pre-made metal sills available for the safrane that can just be welded on?

I'm afraid there wasn't enough of a market for Safrane sills. For Clios there was. I actually welded a new sill into my 1993 Clio.
But sills can be made. It's not that hard.

Buy some 0.7mm sheet metal and some cardboard.
Use the cardboard for prefitting the insert until it fits perfectly and than draw the outline over to the sheet metal.
Than you can weld it in and it should be ok :)
