Polished door sills

Recommended Posts

I'm putting together my xmas wish list. Has anybody stateside purchased polished sill protectors with the esprit logo on them? Where is a reputable place to get them? Some of the ebay ones look dodgy...

Not stateside, but I got mine from Marcus

These one's aren't polished metal either, they're a sort of rubbery clear plasticy sort of thing. But, they've been on the car for 2 years and still look like new and really good :)


Hey, can anyone smell fuel?????

I have designed some full sized sill plates to completely fill the sill area with the latest Esprit logo on but it's still on the drawing board so to speak. I've printed it off and given to my guy who will make them.

I'd see if you can get some sills in US before looking further a field. Shipping cost for a flat piece of metal will make them uneconomical.

Hi Graham,

Not sure yet. I have been a little too eager in the past as I've been told by my manufacturers. It seems they drag their heels at everything I put to them. I suppose it's back to the low volume stuff again and not much demand. To say I handed over drawings about 3 months ago will be an understatement. I will chase up again today. I won't take any orders until I have some sets in my hands. I have fallen victim to this in the past and it just stressed me out.

Here's some images, I've kept them simple. There are two slightly different sizes fonts. I think the smaller one is better so Iam going with this one.

You could call your local Lotus dealer.

They look like PNM ones which are the same as I sell too!

Unless someone else is doing full sized ones?

i know a man who is working in a company for metall(aluminum) plates and labels (for door bells, company signs, advertisements). I'm sure if you ask him and give the right measurements he can arrange a small production line.

The problem is really getting them over here in the States. Shipping costs on something like that would be horrible. I am going to try my local Lotus dealer first.

i think it is not a problem if you know who is to ask about it. Every manufacturer of such door plates an advertisement labeling can produce some engraved and anodized sill plates...
