Sills in Devon and Cornwall

Post by Liskeard BLE » Thu Jun 18, 2020 5:03 pm

Hi,
I'm new to the MGB register and forum and I'm looking for some guidance.
I'm going to be replacing the sills on my B LE in the near future. Can anyone point me in the direction of decent garages in Devon and Cornwall. I have a couple of places that I've been told about. I wondered if there were any hidden gems that anyone might like to share with me.
Many thanks

The MGCC has a list of approved garages and suppliers. Tim Kelly in your neck of the woods comes to mind. Worth checking him out. Best to use someone who really knows these cars, and who will put the right panels in the right places!
Sills for example often need 5 panels per side as a minimum. The sills themselves are double walled structures.

This link should find Tim Kelly - in St Agnes.
I've never used his services but he is a known MG man and worth checking out

David Broadhurst our Scribe for Safety fast is down your way.

It might be worth dropping him an email https://www.mgb-register.org/contact-us-page/

He is also in the forum
