Here is some very nice stuff as an upgrade, finally wood door sills for the 9-5. :cheesy:
They are a great upgrade from the hard plastic OEM door sills that look too cheap for a car like the 9-5. They DO look much better than them.
The wood has to be extremelly heated to bend. I had to make two templates before I got the right one.
The size and shape of the wood door sills are the same than the OEM plastic ones.
I bend the wood in excess as it normally tends to get straighter so that you have no problems in fitting.

This is the kind of work you have to expect






After it is bended, the wood is cut, sanded and later the wood can be tinted to darker or lighter too. After that it is varnished. Wood thickness is aproximatelly 5 mms.
Price would be 140 euros for the complete set. Keep in mind this kind of stuff takes a LOT of time to make.
Please, only ask if you´re serious about buying. Cheers
p.s I also wanna have custom wood door pulls, but that will take much more time.

Wow they are very cool. All they need is a coat or two of Polyurethane to keep the scuffs at bay and you'd be ready for the car show. :cool:
