Can anybody please tell me where I can get a replacement Sill for my 99 156? Mine was badly patched by the previous owner and now needs a further patch for the MOT Luckily the rest of the car is solid apart from the 2 supports in front of the front wheels (ones that support corner of Bumper and undertray.
I intend to get this car to a near concourse condition and keep it for the odd day out. If sill aren't available, can anyone recommend a really good and very patient welder/fabricator? I'm in the Midlands.
I was quoted £201 ex vat for one sill from Sturges. Unbelievably expensive! On a Ford it would have been a quarter of that! Can anyone get a trade discount?
Rockhopper - I imported this car from new in 1999 - had loads of fun in it and was very sad to sell it 10 years ago. I heard that the last owner was going to scrap it cos of engine failure do I rescued it from the scrapyard. It deserves a gallant death not one in a crusher - I dont want it being re-incarnated as a coke can
just managed to get mine through mot,with welding to n/s sill and floor to sill area,lad who did it said "dont bring it back next year",said it was a nightmare,its a 1999 156.
i'm afraid once the tin worm gets to them,they can't be repaired economically.
