I bought this skirt on e-bay in the hopes that I could do something with it to cover up my sill damage.

I find it is not worth the effort so if anyone is prepared to collect it, it is theirs

doesnt sound like you stan thought you were up for giving that stuff a go or are you like me at the mo and cant be arsed lol
StanH
Couple of things - firstly it is for a three-door and would need major surgery and secondly, what Artscot said!
It is in pretty good nick

Stan, i saw a 3 door set on ebay that was trimmed down to fit a 5 door model - do it, what you got to lose? you already have the contour shape of what you need to trim off.

Sal, I just couldn't be bothered and am making other arrangements to make the sill area presentable, so anyone can have it.
The pity is that I cannot get a replacement sill for a Mk2 - plenty available for Mk1

post a pic of the sill area. cant you take it to a garage to have a plate welded on to cover the damage and then repair it (filler/spray etc) so it looks like nothing has happened?

you could just take a small hacksaw to the skirt.....Cmon Stan where's the spirit (says he that still hasnt completed the reserve light mod although 99% is ready and waiting to be fitted!)

I went through all this back in Sept in topic Looking for a Sill, where these pics were posted

Hoping to pull some of this out and do some fibreglass filling and bodgery. If I do, will put up more pics.

Skirt still available

Stan, i had a look at the damage and it is fixable. normally they panel beater will weld one a few tacks and pull it out or will apply a new plate over it and blend it in.

i did find this on ebay:

the replacement panel will probably cost you a lot more to fix so get the fibreglass/bodyfiller out and sort it.
