We're doing up an EB Ghia, but have found a few rust holes in the sill panels.
They are open all the way down the side from the front, and allow all the water and dirt to get in, which we think is a poor design.


We're really looking to replace them, however we can't find anywhere that sells aftermarket ones. We've tried Rare Spares (they only stock X series ones), and would prefer not to have to cut them out of wrecks if we can avoid it, purely because we don't think they'd be in any better condition.

Wondering if any of you have been able to source these, and if so, where you got them?

A panelbeater we've spoken to said he asks Ford clubs around the area where they get them, but so far we've had no luck.

If we do have to cut them from wrecks and weld them into our car (and yes we have fully qualified auto body builders and repairers at our disposal), then we'd also be looking to cover them up with some side skirts.

So again if anyone could suggest places around Sydney where we can find some would also be appreciated. We've tried Fibre Sports (AWC), however they don't have any stock that we could go and have a look at before purchasing.

The car is being cleaned up to replace the XF my mother has run into the ground, so we're not looking for anything outrageous, as this car will eventually meet the same fate.

Thanks, Feathers.
