Door sills
« on: April 11, 2019, 03:59:32 PM »
I'm looking for a set of door sills for a 1930 Plymouth 4dr sedan.  This is the flat pieces with a little ridge that holds the carpet down on each door entrance.

Thanks

Search < door sills > in the "General Discussion" board.  There was someone who was making these but I don't believe he is still doing this.  A while back I tried to contact him but had no luck.  The three I have are badly worn and I need a 4th as a replacement. 

If you have any luck let me know.  I guess once I get to the point of installing these I will have to come up with a solution.

Tks, Chet...

So just talked to Don over at Door Sills
(Door Sills (Don Kuhn) 81 Graham Ave., North Haledon, NJ 07508. Ph# 973-904-0270)
Email; doorsills@gmail.com
Sending off one front and one rear, he charges $250 including shipping, he will make the pattern for them if he doesn't have the pattern on the shelf for the same price.
Turn around is about a month he says.

The total was $275 including shipping (not sure why it went up $25 but couldn't argue), had to mail in a check, he doesn't do "any of that fancy electronic payment stuff"

 I might have what you are looking for, however, I am unable to upload to this site a photo of the trim parts I have.  If you wish, reply and I will gladly send you the photos directly to your email.  I've tried reducing the size, but the photos just won't fly.  Regards, Marc

I believe pictures need to be under 1 Megabyte.  Use paintbrush to reduce the size.
