sill plate cardboard insulator 73 vert
#1
Replacing my sill plates. One side the PO used duct tape to protect the wiring. On the driver side there was a nice card board one that folds around the wiring in the channel. here a photo. It got like a wax coating on it. Looking to buy one.

I think the originals are made of brown cardboard and are really flimsy. REPOPS makes repros that are almost plastic like and they are black! Have not installed them yet so I don't know how they fit!

I have the REPOPS. They fit well and the thicker material helps with the sill plate not deflecting. They worked well for me.

The factory actually put the black duct tape over the wires in the channel not PO. All I have ever worked on had black duct tape and the cardboard piece.

As stated, this is the correct restoration procedure as done at DAP in 1971.

Tape was used to hold quarter paper also.

P.S.  These are original pieces for 1971 (if you need to see the look/size and bend)
