Door Sill guards & Scuff plates

I just added these scuff guards and sill plates. I got the versions that have the extended sill plate for the rear doors. The only place I found them were on ebay from China & they arrived in just 8 days.

Re: Door Sill guards & Scuff plates

I put these in too. Ordered them before the car arrived. The rear ones are pretty useless though.

Re: Door Sill guards & Scuff plates

My kids step right over them onto the plastic scuff guard. I'm going to add the rear aluminum scuff guards tonight. The 3m tape that came on them was a joke, so I had to go buy some wider and stronger 3m tape.

I am not sure which 3M tape is installed on those, but there are some REALLY good 3M tapes. I use VHB at work at that stuff is like welding.

Re: Door Sill guards & Scuff plates

It was really thin 3m tape. The problem is the plates are not perfectly flush molded. They fit great, but the tape thats on it just isn't strong enough.

Re: Door Sill guards & Scuff plates

I have them on now and they're perfect with the stronger 3m tape. My son stepped right on it when I asked him to hop in, so they serve their purpose. Before when my kids stepped on the beige on inclement weather days, it left muddy scuffs. I work hard at trying to keep it mint with 2 kids, but it's doable.
I just bought 2 Drop Stops today after my daughter spilled shredded lettuce bt the seat and console the other night at Sonic. They work as advertised and pretty nice cheap addition for $20 at Walmart. I'll get a pic of them in a few. Here are the scuff guards installed.

Re: Door Sill guards & Scuff plates

Here are the drop stops. You can have them up flush with the top of the seat or higher. You can also tuck them down as far as you want and they fit snug.

Re: Door Sill guards & Scuff plates

Oh those are drop stops are smart looking! Where did you order those from? I can't count how many times my key fob has landed down there after falling from my jacket pocket.

Re: Door Sill guards & Scuff plates

I picked them up at Walmart for $9.99 each after I googled them. You can get them lots of places online or in stores.
I saw them on Shark Tank and those guys that invented them are raking in the cash.

Can't even see 'em with my black leather.

I remember when the scuff plate covers showed up on ebay I bought a pair.


The seller asked me to take some photos of them mounted after I sent him the photos I only kept the rear one on.

I also had to use my own 3M tape (I always have some on hand I keep a hoard of two sided tape and now I have some adhesion promoter and it comes in handy)

I was not crazy about the "Z" pattern stamped into the fronts

I once saw a set with some beads rolled into them but could never find them for sale.

The drop stop are a good I idea I will get a set for the 2011.
