Great work man.

One thing I would suggest is using the vinyl spray paint they sell for interiors or better yet would be the urathane bumper paint. Though these won't be flexing much if any those two paints remain slightly ruberized and have magical chemicals that help them adhere to that kind of material.

Great job Carl, I'm assuming you will be bringing the material and supplies to make 4 of those for my car to the work party.

I PM'd S2 to add this to the "how to" archive.

I finally was able to finish the other three sill plates. Was planning on the final fitment and install tomorrow morning. Will take some final pix tomorrow.

Just to let everyone know, that I've had these sill plates on for a while and the paint and clear coat have been holding up strong. There's some shoe scuffs on the clear which was expected, but I can still wipe them clean with no damage to the paint and clear. Just thought I'd throw this in. LOL.

Great job CJohn! I found some universal sill trim at Advance Auto. A pair was $15 and you would need 2 pair for sedans. Don't know how this compares cost-wise.
