Door Sill Plates
#1
tach 
Anybody use the Scott Drake "heavy" aluminum sill plates? Are they any good? I was thinking of going with the stainless but saw the Scott Drakes and thought I would ask. My car has the cheap Flimsy aluminum ones now and they suck!!

I've heard a lot of good comments about the SS ones that Don at OMS has.

'73 Grandé H Code. Headman long tube headers, T-5 Transmission, 3.70 Traclok, Lowered 1" all around, Aussie 2v heads w/ 2.19 intake, 1.71 exhaust, screw in studs, full roller cam 608/612 lift 280/281 duration LSA 112, Quick Fuel 750 CFM double pumper, AirGap intake.

'73 F code convertible. Bright red. Needs total restore. (IE HOT MESS)

My experience so far...aluminum is great for factory appearance (good for shows) , but not so great for looking good for any length of time since they scratch / scuff easily. I switched to stainless and so far (3 years) they have resisted serious scuffing / marring pretty well.

I don't know about you, but getting in and out of the car and dragging a foot across the sill plate just seems to happen most of the time.

The stainless steel ones hold up very well

+1 on stainless steel sill plates. Much better than the aluminum repos.

The guys are right on about the stainless ones. I keep a new flimsey set for shows. I switch back to a driver set between shows.
