Default Ugh ohh!

So, cleaning the car yesterday and while wiping the sills, noticed a bit of bubbly ginger near the front o/s jacking pad. Pressed on it and, yep, nearly put my finger through 🤔 Got the rears done by Tom a few years back, so on to ebay to get a pair of fronts. Managed to bag the last pair. Job for the summer methinks.

Good job you caught it early. Probably need the jacking structure rebuilt ?

Tom also makes these and they are works of art.

Ronnie , if you still have his number I would contact him direct. I did earlier this year and I got my front sill sections cheaper than eBay as it saved on the eBay fees. I just sent him a message and he got back to me the next day with the price and had them made the next week. I got the body shop next to Dave Johnson to fit and paint them.

Already ordered them Pete, how much did that place charge for fitting if you don't mind me asking?

£400 to do both sides including painting and the car looked factory fresh when she was done. Mine had to be done as Dave failed both front sills on the MOT so it was easier just to leave the car with him and drop the panels round when they arrived. the lad's called Chris Allison.

Default Chris Allison's business contact details

Dear All
Do you have the business details of Chris Allison? My back sill definitely need doing and, knowing my car, the front ones as well!
Best wishes
Bob
