Hi
Anybody had this? What sort of job is it to repair,
Could inner sills be corroded? What’s best way of checking
Sorry about all questions 😁

common issue,

difficult to say, depends on the extent of rust.

any pictures.....

can only check the inners once you have cut out the rust on the outer....

most repairs are doable all depends on how deep your pockets and the overall condition of the rest of the car.

But both inner and out has been replaced before, a lot of work...

all the best

Ask Kev (CPT) when he's able to make up a batch next. They aren't a full sill but the rear sections but do fit quite nicely.

I think it was around £60 from Kev for inners and outers when I did mine a couple of years ago.

Best ask Kev (CPT black) as it depends if he is still able to make them.
