View Full Version : Aluminum Door Sills Round 2

Hey Guys,

I've been tossing around the idea of doing another run of the door sills for everyone who missed out the first time around. First, I want to get everyone's opinion on how long I should have ordering open for since I don't want you guys to have to wait too long from the date of payment. Also I want to make sure my timing is ok for most since i know there's car shows coming up.

I only plan on making the designs that were ordered the first time around since all the drawings and programs have already been created. This will also be the last run of sills.

I was planning on opening ordering next week the 14th and have it open until I start production. I have a trip planned at the end of this month so I would more than likely start production around August 4th. Since I already have these dialed in they should ship 2-3 weeks after that. Let me know what you guys think and if this works for everyone.

If you are new to the sill project here's the link for the first run. Gives you a good idea on price, finishes available, and pictures.

Ordering is now open until August 4th, hopefully 3 weeks is long enough for everyone to get their orders in. I mentioned after the first run there was going to be a price increase, well there was it's about 10%. I also added a Clear Anodize option to the polished Door Sills this time around.

**CHROME SILLS- The chrome sills are somewhat of a problem this time around. My chrome plater had a difficult time the first time around with the sills because of the length of them. I was actually barely able to get enough "good" sills the first time to fill in orders and got stuck with a bunch of bad ones that had chrome issues which I eventually stripped off. This time around my plater wants to build special racks to hold the sills vs. wiring them up individually to not only make it easier for him but ensure good quality chrome.

With that being said, the current price for Chrome Sills is $195.00 a pair. The extras cost is coming from a price increase per part that I have to pay for the racks being made. Normally the chroming company does not charge these fees but since this is not a part they chrome normally and I can't give them a number on how many I will be chroming, im being charged for them. But if I can get at least 12 orders of Chrome sills the rack fee will be waived since the quantity will offset the trouble. If we hit 12 orders I will refund $20 to everyone who pays $195.00

The Black anodized contrast sills will be made again. I will also be offering a clear anodize option to the polish sills this time around.

Chrome is going to be my only problem, If i cant get enough orders on chrome sills than the price will go up dramatically. I'll know the chrome minimum before I post up ordering details.

Remember that black anodized is one finish and you have more than one pattern to choose from:

Well It's official ill be opening ordering again on these sills. I was planning on Monday the 14th and ending August 4th so that allows 3 weeks. Seems to be a lot of people interested at the moment, there's still a few who inquired about a second run the first time and I havn't seen them here. Hopefully they don't miss this round too. I sent an email earlier in the week to everyone on my email list, i'll also email them the link when it's active.

If you know anyone who might be interested or was interested let them know because I don't know if i'll do another run. I'm almost positive I wont. I'm still not a member on FB, if anyone wishes to post it on there that would be great.

Thanks, Greg.

Yes. David Clark's sill are contrast cut style#2.

The engine oil cap IS available in contrast. I didn't do any in that finish the first time around thats why there's no picture, as soon as I get the first one done i'll post up a picture. Just Select the "contrast cut" option when ordering.

Ordering has tapered off a lot, nothing in the last couple of days. Just wondering if there were a few out there waiting to the end maybe to gather some money together or is this gonna be everyone interested.

I can close up ordering at the end of the week to get these started right away and get them out faster to those who have already paid, or stick it out until the initial date of August 4th, what do you guys think?

^^ What Tim said. The list on the first post was just to track how many CHROME orders we had for the price break im trying to get. You ordered polished so need to worry about that.

I also had an email list going on to notify some guys when this group buy was going to start. You already ordered so no need to worry about that too.

That's correct, and no worries I got a little impatient and wanted to start cutting, but I decided to wait and I've been keeping myself busy with some other parts for the bird.

Everyone else, I'll be leaving out of the country tomorrow for a week, i'll try to check this as much as possible, if it's possible. If you have any questions that you need answered before you order post them up, the sooner the better. I'll do my best to answer them before the deadline.

That design without the 'super coupe' lettering would be design 1, which is what you ordered. Are we on the same page?

Just a heads up, today is the 4th. Ordering will be open all day today. I'll be placing the order for my materials tomorrow around 9am PST, basically once I order the material I will not be taking any more orders.

Also we still need a couple more orders for chrome for the price break.

Thanks everyone who has ordered so far.

That is/was correct, but I'm kind of reconsidering. Would it be possible to get STYLE 2 black contrast cut (like Dave's in the pic) instead? If it causes ANY problem, confusion, or hassle, I'd be perfectly content to have style 1 as I ordered.

Any estimate of time to completion for these parts?

I had estimated about a 3 week delivery before I started this basing myself off the first run. But there was a lot more interest this time around, with the amount of orders placed machining is taking a little longer. Either way, I am expecting to start shipping orders first week of September, starting with the Polished orders, than the Polish with clear and chrome, the Contrast will be last because of the extra machining after anodize.

All the machining has been completed on the sills and they are currently at my polishing shop. Polishing is the longest process, the sills are being hand ground buffed to avoid deforming the engravings. Once they're back they'll fly through chrome and anodize. I'm expecting parts back by the end of the week maybe early next week.

I'm aware of the shootout coming up and have given myself a personal deadline of getting these out to everyone before then.

I appreciate everyone's patience so far with this order. There was a small hiccup at the polishing shop, they blew a transformer or something and lost a few days with no power. Things are back up and running and I should start shipping orders out this week, I've paid to have the anodize sills expedited for the lost time as well. I'll update everyone with tracking numbers as soon as they start going out. Thanks

Orders already started shipping. A few orders made it out last week, Those will arrive before the shootout. Those lucky guys have already got emails with their tracking info. More orders are going out today, and more will continue to go out day by day as they're finished but these will all arrive after the shootout because UPS on average is about a 4 day transit.

More orders when out yesterday, all polished have shipped so far. I was waiting on my oil caps and those just came in so the balance of the chrome orders should leave tomorrow.

The only chrome or polished orders that will not ship tomorrow are those that have some type of anodized item included. Which includes the polish with clear or if you ordered a polish/chrome set and an additional contrast set. They'll ship together with the contrast when those are ready.

62167
62168
62169

I decided to stock up on the oil caps and did a huge run of caps, polished, chrome and contrast.
62170

This picture is the pallet of sills that went to ANODIZE alone. Quite a few orders guys, i appreciate it.
62171

I tried to expedite the black ano but there was too many so im scheduled to finally pick this Anodized Batch up on Friday and will chop away all weekend on the highlights so I can start shipping Contrast orders on Monday, my goal is to have everyone's orders shipped by next Wednesday because i'll be going out of town on Thursday.

I also made quite a few of these coolant fill caps. They're just plain machined at the moment because i'm not sure what I want to engrave on them, either the lettering off the original cap or another SC logo somehow. I may just leave mine plain Polished because I like the look. If anyone who placed an order on this Door Sill buy before the close date (8/4 I think) would like one please post here or message me and I'll drop one in your box as a gift for everyone's patience. If you don't want one I'll make it good on some other parts I make in the future.

I was just gonna ask that. I was thinking about coolant or pressure leaks but my original plastic cover was cracked and hanging there anyways. Maybe that's why my car was overheating before I rebuilt it? I can still probably add an o-ring or another type of seal before I send them out.

KMT
10-15-2014, 10:05 PM
Not sure an o-ring would do.

There are flat gaskets for radiator drain plugs and I'd think a flat fiber or metal/rubber oil drain plug gasket (http://www.autozone.com/autozone/parts/Dorman-Engine-Oil-Drain-Plug-Gasket/1990-Ford-Thunderbird/_/N-igp61Z8gd4x?itemIdentifier=129566_106429_7835_) should work.
http://contentinfo.autozone.com/znetcs/product-info/en/US/drm/365269/image/2/

Just have to find the right size.

Depending on how this item fits, there may be no need for anything else. It's not uncommon to run without the skirt. The bolt must be tight in any case.

The aluminum is probably soft enough to act as a seal anyway. I was just wondering if there was an oring provision or something. I don't think a seal is much of a problem, not having it. Like others have said people run the plug with nothing under it.

To everyone receiving the contrast sills, I think my guy applied a little too much polish when he wiped them down. That being said when you open them up they may seem "wet" just give them a light wipe with a clean microfiber towel to dry them off and they'll look great. No need to rub or press to hard, it's clear liquid polish that wipes right off.

The polish I use is "ICE" Liquid polish by turtle wax, gives the anodize a real deep shine. A light coat with a microfiber is all you need.

The first post in this thread, has a link to the other related thread [ http://www.sccoa.com/forums/showthread.php?132212-Aluminum-Door-Sills ] that should have a link to the website they were being sold thru..

Finally got them on, just in time for Carlisle! :D

If Greg ever does these again, jump on them!
