    Repair / replacing sill trim

    Hello all

    One job on my to do list for the TQS is try to repair / replace the sill covers, you know that kind of black trim which protects the sill from cr@p thrown up from the wheels. It seems to be like a plastic / rubbery type coating applied to the outer sills below the door line

    Is this a special type of paint or is it a plastic protection does anyone know??

    My car seems to have worn through this coating at the front edge of the sill so looks very strange with the front 6 inches of sill being silver and the rest black!!

    Cheers guys!

    I'm tempted to spray mine so it's body coloured. Not sure what it is originally though

    Looking again at the sills, could it be a rubbery type of underseal? Not sure how it would be applied if this was the case? Maybe a body shop would know?

    Yeh thats exactly what it is.

    Its a thick spray on underseal, you can get brush on stuff to cover the bit wehre its come off, but it wont be a perfect match.

    Hi there.

    I work in a body shop by trade and its just a stone chip/ under coating most of them only come in black they are available in a can spray a professional gun type and a brush on. its relatively easy to colour code it.

    the hardest part is removing the stone chip you already have. some thinners a scraper and some old rags should do the trick. we have some really nice in the can stone chip at work. ill get the name of it for you ! has a fantastic finnish

    That would be excellent if you can let me know the name of some decent stuff so I can get some ordered up, can't wait to get rid of the two tone sills!!
