    Thats always an option but then something like that will crop up and you'll have to get it done at some point

    Bugg3r mate, good hear the kid was OK. There is a chap down in Birmingham who specialised in Vectra Spares....let me know if you want his number and he will most certainly have the sill cover. If your in east mids, not to far to come and collect either at the right price!

    Nothing a bit of newspaper and bathroom sealer won't fix!

    Must have been a tough old bike as it's ripped through the metal sill!


    Snowman, you got your ears on?

    No problems PeteRs....try the same guy. Am I correct in thinking you need the white plastic clip things? Im sure he is breaking one at the moment, so if he has the clips, should be able to clip them off for you....?
