Sill scuff marks

Recommended Posts

Wow is correct.  I think I might have some in the garage for my dirt bike boots.  I know I have neets foot oil.  If not I am buying some.  That looks great

looks great. My sills were a bit more scratched. My solution was 600 grit paper , quick rub back and spray satin black. Acrylic takes 24 hours to fully cure , but surface is hard and does not scuff easily . Pretty permanent.

I have found painting mine does a great job but the colour does not match.  Has anybody found a good match for the Matt Black used in the 997's?

Howe, stupid question but have you just rubbed the Dubin into the sill and got this result, or have you done some sort of polishing or abrasion to get rid of the scratches and undulations.

No good question.  I cannot get mine to look as good after applying the Dubbin, better but not great.

Also, did you happen to rub it into your seat edge whilst you were at it?

Autoglym would be my first choice, but if you need colour then try  Bowdens Mr Black trim restorer.  It has a dye to help bring back the colour.

Just wiped it down with a damp cloth, then dry, then Dubbin. It could be that photos always look better than real life but I was pretty impressed with the result with such little effort. It won't take out any surface defects, the car has only done 27k so not had a lot of use.

Stepo,

I did try it on the seat but didn't make a lot of difference.
