A cautionary tale for anyone who has fitted these sill plates: I fitted them to my MX-5 just over a year ago. Recently I removed them to inspect for rust and was disappointed to discover some rust spots appearing on the outer edge of sill where water had become trapped between the sill and the plate. I have treated the rust spots and bedded the plates on a bead of silicone sealant. I would recommend that anyone has fitted these should do likewise. My car is only used in dry weather, so the water ingress resulted from washing the car.
