    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!!
