Hi...My suzi failed her MOT as the inner sills are shot! does anyone have any options of best method of replacement? ie ive found original panels (not cheap) but heard of someone just chopping them out and fitting box section, in a sort of rock slider style...pressume this would still pass mot? any one else had this problem( i cant be the only one Smile )any assistance is greatly recieved.....shes a V6 98 5 door...far too good to scrap or break so i want to get sorted....

Thank You
