Pulled over to pick up a passenger and went over a rock hidden in the grass - nearside sill badly damaged.
I can only find the complete panel which includes sill and door for a 2006 focus. Can find a sill for Mk1 but not Mk2.
Can anyone please help me locate just a sill
Thanks

Stan, even although it's damaged, have you consulted any of the 'paintless' dent removal people? they can work absolute wonders! I got a couple of 'bullet' marks and a bad ding removed from my car. He didn't want to touch the wing as the paint would crack, but when I told him I was going to get that bit sprayed, he returned it perfectly to it's original profile.

Local repairer has looked at this but damage is too extensive even for reshaping etc. Only solution is new panel which is far too expensive or replacement sill, which we can't find

Still no luck in finding a replacement sill so, in my ignorance, I am wondering if the skirts I see advertised fit over the existing sill, and would this maybe be a way out.

You may be able to camouflage the dent with a skirt but I reckon you'll need to get the sill reshaped a little as it may well not allow the sill to sit flush and the shut line to the door is too close also.

I'm new to all this so please bear with me.

I see what you mean about the door shut, Stoney, but do you think this - http://bit.ly/Usw7ad - could be used, and if so, how are these skirts fitted, screws rivets or how?
