NC rustproofing - sill protectors

Postby CaptainNorth » Wed Sep 23, 2015 12:55 pm


Last winter I did most of the underbody but not behind the plastic sill protectors. Your ND pics have reminded me I should take a look. Any advice on removing these on the NC (06 plate)? Could end in tears and a pile of broken clips....

I would get yourself a pile of clips, you will probably break a number like I did when removing the plastic sill covers.

Yes measure the clips and buy some spares on ebay.

Remove the protector and spray on some of the transparent wax available from Dinitrol etc or the black stuff if it cannot be seen after giving the area behind the protector a good clean and repair if any coating has been damaged behind there.
