I know most people will say to cut them off.
The correct narrow type sills are stronger and vented to minimise moisture build up in the box section.
However, if they truly are still rust free internally, then I guess there is no hurry to change them. Just keep a close eye before you end up having to spend out on inner sills too

I'd look inside and if they are still perfect, pump them with more waxoyl.
I dont think the strength is that much of an issue if they're not rusty, they will devalue the car if you sell it regardless of how solid they are, the first thing we'd say to a buyer of your car is "either run away or knock off the cost of replacing the sills and any paint work required".

That's actually a good idea, cut a line down where it should be, drill holes where it needs welding between the vents, clean up the floor and prime it, weld the sill then touch up the paint.
Can they be converted to the same style as standard sills, ie cut along the length

but your waxoyl that is in there will go up in flames.
He could wash the sills out with some petrol first, lol.

Obviously I would have to cut carefully to otherwise I will cut the inner sills
sod the cutting its the welding that would be the issue. just leave untill you need to fix it.
