Im taking my sills off at the minute, but the spot points arnt very apparent, am i missing something?
Is there a good wy to find them easier?

If you can ease a thin edged screw driver between the seams, where you can't pry the two flanges apart is where the spotweld is, they stand out quite well that way
spot remover or drill is the best way for sure

if you look at the diagram i did you will see the blue dots along the bottom of the sill, the best way to find them is to use a twisted wire wheel on your angle grinder and clean all the paint away, then you should see small round dents along the edge (they can be quite hard to see) normaly about an inch or so apart.
Drill them out then use a cold chisel between the bottom edge of the sill and the floor to seperate it.
Where the sill is atatched to the door step use the angle grinder cut just below it( red line) using a cutting blade then change to a grinding blade or a linishing disc and clean up the lip

I have taken my outer sill off, (its all original metal as I've owned the car for the best part of its life), and have found that the exposed surface underneith, ie the floor of the car is now very thin metal once the surface rust has been removed.
I want to cut this out and replace with new metal so do I buy a floor edge repair section and weld this in?
Also, there are 6 inch sills available. Are these better and why would I need to use them?

I have found oversills on my BOC. I am getting the genuine sills but need to know what is required to weld them on? Do you seam weld the whole thing in place, minus the drain holes obviously, or is it case of spot welding where the original ones were i.e. in the same places as that pict above. All I can find on here is how to get them off, not putting them back on! If I get some guidance then when i do mine I will produce a how to... but at the moment I am a bit in th dark!
Thanks in advance
