    Cheers Luke

    As stated above there is a slight gap on the cut out for the flair on the rear wheel arch. Apart from this the main sill fits on all there mounting perfectly, so in theory there is not need to fill the gap. But IMO it will look crap, so it's best to fill the gap with a bit of plastic and shape it to fit.

    All you need to do is use a bit of the standard sill and superglue it in place and then carve, sand and shape it to be a snug fit.

    The piccy shows roughly what you need to fill...



    The front caps don't have the hole in the same place as the standard ones to take the plastic push rivet, so the easiest way to get round this is with a dob of sikaflex and bond it on
