Have you found them to scratch easy? Has anyone tried covering them with clear bra material or a coat of polyurethane? I'd hate for the wife and kids to scratch them up in a day or two.

it's look tough on the sills. I try to scratch serveral times, but it didn't scratch at all. To be safe since you have kids. i think you should find something to protect it.

Unless you carve it with a sharp rock or metal object it won't scratch. Standard wear and tear will do practically nothing to it. On top of that...it's metal and can easily be polished out by hand.

Never underestimate the destuctive power of a kid! HMMM!!! Hiking boots, embedded rocks?!?!

Wouldn't polishing the aluminum remove the silk screening?

The doorsills are pretty tough, we did the best we could on the durability department. The good thing is that they are in a recessed area so you're going to make minimal contact with them. Plus they are metal and scratches can be taken out pretty easily. But don't polish the silkscreening, that will come off if you put polishing compound to it. If your kids decides to take a screwdriver to it, nothing we can do about that :D

If you take off the silkscreen, then you've scratched the metal. At the shop, they showed us that rubbing wouldn't take the silkscreening off and it wasn't until we took a knife and scratched the metal that anything came off.

I see that tempers flare when patience begins to run out. Someone get Henry his door sills, quick!;)

ps: I'm not yet at the killing stage, perhaps just the torturing stage for now.

blah..i want door sills..... :(

oh well, i'll just quietly swipe Josh's sills.... :evil:
If you would, quietly return them too after you discover that they are the sills that don't advertise "Type-S". If you're gonna swipe some, swipe the right ones. :D

ps: how'd the LED investigation go tonight?
