    hello all,

    just a quick enquiry.

    myself and Liam (mr z3cade) would like to remove our sills over the xmas break.

    we would like to check the overall condition, and treat the area's with waxoyl if required.

    Could anyone advise us of the procedure for removing these please?

    id like the process and rough timescales if possible please.

    many thanks

    mark

    Well guys me and the bad man took a rear arch liner out of my M today and found it to be rust free.. Few! but with a shine of a torch could see the the rear of the sill was caked up with 13years of mud and rubish so the sills will be coming off to clean them out..
    I can see if left for longer this would be a prime area for rust to bite.. So get your sills off people and clean them out!!
