    Need new sills for MOT, trying to get the Pulsar back on the road after long hibernation...
    Does anyone have any for sale? Any info would be most appreciated. Thanks

    I tried to get inner and outer sills for both sides from Nissan about 3 years ago and only ended up with the outer sill for the passenger side. So Nissan have stopped doing them. It's down to pattern parts or make your own.

    Thanks for the info about Carz2. I contacted them, they only have sills for the 4 door Sunny.
    Do these fit the GTI-R?
    Or do they need to be so heavily modified that you might as well have some made up?
    Thanks again for your help

    All that's available now is 4/5dr sills, that are outer skins, the rear has no reinforcement like the 3dr ones so that will almost certainly need made up to keep the strength under the rear quarter.
    From the b pillar forward the sills are identical, I'm just using the last set of genuine 3dr sills that I know of on a restoration project and they were 300gbp for the pair...

    Also it seems to be a struggle to get the 4/5dr sill now, the set I used earlier this year took 5 weeks to arrive, the last set that was ordered around 3 months ago still haven't arrived....

    Thanks for the info. I called Carz2 this afternoon as 4/5 door sills are better than none at all but someone bought the last pair of sills they had in stock just this morning!
