Thread: Sill repair panels

  1. #11
    Do you have a link for them? I'm going to tackle the repair myself over the winter, then probably put it to body shop to get the paint sorted. I have a small hole at the back end of each sill. Not cleaned the area up yet, but I'm hopefull I won't need to replace more than a few inches at the very end of the sills.

    I should try making the panels myself, but would be a lot easier if I had a repair panel to cut out what's needed.

I have two rust spots just under the a pillar underside of car so hope these will rectify that . Think your issues are the Rocker covers under the front door ?
    Do you know if the MK2 sill has the same profile as the raddo? Might get the profiler thing I have for tiling and go find a MK2 golf to measure the radius on sill to compare to the raddo...

    Not sure I'm just going to give the repair panels to my body shop and if they are no good they will have to make something up and Ill have some spares for my MK2 golf. I cannot see anything else on the market for a repair panel for that area.

    I believe the Corrado has the same floor panel and lip that rises but I think you need the panels that are on the outside of these ??

    Floor panel same for below models
    Corrado (09/88 - 07/95)
    position 2 at drawing 2
    Golf 2 Rallye (08/89 - 07/91)
    similar to position 2 at drawing 1
    Golf 2 Syncro (08/85 - 07/91)
    similar to position 2 at drawing 1
    Golf Country (08/90 - 07/91)
    similar to position 2 at drawing 1
    Jetta 2 syncro (08/85 - 07/91)
    similar to position 2 at drawing 1

    To be honest chap 90 % sure it will not have the same profile as a golf, you'll need to cut out from a breaker or someone that can fabricate the sill, the A pillar part of the sill that meets the wing is still available for one side, the whole sill panel is made up of the A pillar sill, the part that is obsolete and the rear quarter.

    They're the inner sill panels in your attached links I think, which basically fit the MK2 Golf, but should fit the Corrado also. The main floor panels do fit the Corrado as well, but may need very slight fabrication as the Corrado floor pan was based on the MK2 Golf, but will differ in very small areas, hence slight fabrication.

    Unfortunately the outer sill panels have been obsolete for a while now, I think the left side one was only available up until very recently.

    Left outer sill for Corrado 1989 to 1995
    Part number 535 809 847 Obsolete

    Right outer sill for Corrado 1989 to 1995
    Part number 535 809 848 Obsolete


    Hope this helps

    Si
    Had MK2 1.8 Scirocco Scarla 1998 to 2002
    had it lowered on original wheels,
    K&N air fitler and Janspeed exhaust system.

    Now have 94 M reg Corrado 2.0 16v since 2002 still got it, been off the road now since early 2015
    hoping to get it finished this year.

    Also have a 2015 Seat Ibiza TSI i-tech as my daily driver. Plus I'm on The SEAT Forum.

    Thanks for the replies. The knowledge on this forum is superb.

    Found this whilst browsing for parts. Not sure if it inner or outer sill, or what it is...

    Might be worth a punt.

    I am thinking that repairing these wee bits will be my first attempt at shaping panels.

    Such a shame you cant post pics on here, it's getting pretty difficult to communicate without them or for members to show their restoration work to give others inspiration or ideas.

    That looks promising looks like the right shape and if not correct maybe something you could make work with a bit of hokery pokery.

    Don't appear to be sided, which seems odd. I've ordered 1, hopefully it will be the right shape to make a couple of repair section

    What you might find is that there is more work to be done underneath, the drain holes are behind that area of the rocker covers , so you may well need the outer floor panels but at least they are available thanks to the Golf MK2.
