Sill Protectors - Any Recommendations?

Having trashed my old D4 sills, I'm keen not to do the same with the new (to me) D4. This is mostly from metal studs in the soles of wading boots whilst getting in/out of the vehicle.

I'd like some sill protectors to protect the body-colored metal that is visible when the door is open and was thinking of something such as these from Lockwood International but curious what others would recommend please?

Thanks in advance, Harry

Those actually look really nice and are inexpensive to boot! I was looking at these but couldn't justify the cost:

I used the Lockwood ones on the last 2 or 3 D4’s I had. The area that they cover is superior to some others.

On my D3 I had the sills covered in heavy duty clear 3M protective film from new. That was the best. 👍

Oh! Where did you get the film from? I looked at 3M's site and there's loads all over the shop, so which one did you plump for if I may ask?

I've actually gone ahead and brought the Lockwood ones as they seem really good value for money. I'll post some photos when I fit them!

I’ve used the Lockwood plates on for several years on all of my Discos. Excellent quality and value. Mark the location on the car first as they are usually very sticky.

I can’t recall the name of the business now. I posted about them on here back in 2006!

The Lockwood product is great. Thumbs Up

I have these. The price is the same as it was in 2017 when I bought them. I’ll vouch that they’re excellent and have been staying on for about 7 years so far. Whistle they were manufactured by Bearmach originally, I think.

Cheers for that but it looks like that site is dead now. Big Cry There is a site based in India but they don't have any car products! No dramas!

I would imagine any vinyl wrapping firm would do it. Thumbs Up

Good choice, very durable too.
Mine have been on a while on this Disco.
Pic also shows a suggestion of yours, excellent call.
