GRP side sill install- Connecticut

I sold these to a forum member and installed them. Overall a pretty easy installation. I like that the riv nuts get put into the aluminum chassis. The GRP sills are really well made and engineered. I had to adjust a few holes on the right side but if your doing this install, that part is easy. The only annoying part is slitting the mud flaps to get the front to fit. I felt like I should of taken them off and cut them but it came out great. If anyone wants side sills installed let me know. I have the hardware.

I did not get a chance to take any pictures. I would not say that the riv nuts would compromise the structure at all as it seems to be a boxed extruded piece. Literally no glass attachments except for the rear wheel arch which this gentleman will be using double sided tape.
