If you mean the Star panel sills on ebay they are a very poor fit, i returned mine. there are another set on ebay now which look like they could be old copys so would be better https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vauxhall-Viv ... Swyupa9Jse

I've been keeping an eye on those as they say they're for a 4door.

If you plan on bidding on them Chris then please let me know so I don''t bid against you! I already have some sill panels (2 door pattern parts) that will be adequate for me considering the state of my car.

Hello chaps,it’s me selling those sills on ebay. Don’t worry about bidding against each other as I have 2 sets up for grabs anyway. Nick

Hi Nick
Do you know if the ones you are selling have the correct profile ive got three at home and they are no good they dont have enough curve to line up with the bottom of the front wing ie to flat,

Could they be bent to shape, or is there just not enough metal there?
