I bought a pair of sills for the Bullet, with the intention of Mr DTM to cut bits out and use bits of the replacement sills to weld back in, but it never happened before the car went.

The sills were about 40 delivered for the pair IIRC, worth it IMHO to save the effort fabricating a sheet the right shape.


I was recommended the Clarke 135 by MDTM, and find it an easy machine to work with...  ...my tip being whack the gas right up to max, ignoring the settings suggested in the booklet. It does use a fair amount of CO2, but just replace with bigger cylinder when time comes.

I think I probably have the capability to weld bits of sill in, but lack the confidence to do so.
Have you still got the sills, but no need of them any more?
They are in the roof of the garage currently.  I thought they would be worth keeping for TBE, as no doubt a time will come when that needs them.

I ordered them from the place VXL V6 recommended, but took ages to come, as they were waiting for them to be made.


If you are really desperate, timewise, and are passing this way, you can have these if you replace them. Sadly, too problematic to post. So I'd recommend trying to get some from place VXL V6 used, and only come here if they are slow to dispatch.
Thanks for the offer, I may hold you to it. I tried to order some tonight and their web site said they were closed at the moment, so I will try again later. I play golf in Didcot every Friday so I could collect and return if necessary. I will try to order again tomorrow.

I can likely get them to Oxford with a bit of notice, as the Outlaws are there

Thanks, that would be great. Son Ben has a mate who welds cars for a living and who has agreed to take on this job and show me how it's done He owns no tools, so I have to buy a welder and whatever else we need. I presume you visit the outlaws occasionally and could leave the sills there. How soon might this be?

Today caz2 e-mailed me, said they would be ordering some more sills in about 3 weeks time, should they order a pair for me. I said yes. It sounds like they will be some time.

Yes, they take a bit of time to arrive but save you having to fabricate from sheets of metal.

That would be excellent, though I would not collect until the following Friday. I plan to collect Friday morning before golf. After golf I visit an old friend, then play table tennis at Culham Laboratory, then go to the Cherry Tree, Steventon, for a meal amd a chat, leaving about 10pm for home. If they could be at Horspath by Friday 20th that would be great.

Thanks. Carz tell me they will advise cost and get delivery details when they next have stock, but it sounds like it could be a few weeks.

I sent you a PM, with contact details. Cills are already there.

Can you confirm you got the PM?  You will have to liaise with them for time, as they are not always in ;)
