Ames Door Sill Plates
« on: January 22, 2019, 03:27:11 PM »
Hi All:

I get most of my parts from Ames and I really think they are GREAT - so this is not vendor bashing.

I just wanted to report that the door sill plates that I received for my 78 TA are very thin and dent easily.

Wish I could find some OEM quality ones.

Again - Ames is GREAT - but this particular part isn't so great.

I bought the same ones a month ago, but have not yet installed them. One came without the Fisher sticker, they had to send one out separate. Did not seem to be high quality. :(

Dont recall offhand if they offer a good and better quality on these like they do a lot of the parts. I bought them ( I too bought most of my parts from Ames) a couple of years ago and was very happy with the quality. I think the price was pretty hefty as well. They may have changed over the last year of so.

Also, you can post a criticism so to speak on the PY forum that goes directly to the vendor, may be worth making your voice known. Dont think it will help your cause but it may help with future products so the seller knows how customers feel about their products.

I am happy with the sill plates purchased from Classic Industries, fit and finish is very good.
