Source for S1 door sills?

I'm working to get one of my S1 spiders back together and am wondering if anyone knows of a source for S1 spider door sill plates. Mine cleaned up OK, but they are dented, scratched and bent. Does anyone know of a source? The usual places don't have them. I see Mr. Fiat has the flat sills, but has anyone seen the smaller sill pieces for sale anyplace?

Thanks in advance!

I think you are seeking the door threshold weatherstripping cover. Early examples were stainless steel and surrounded the weatherstrip. They get nicked and dented by design...to prevent damage to the rubber weatherstripping. I am unaware of anyone reproducing this piece. You can try using a suitable piece of doweling underneath and gently try to massage to the original shape. Later years used painted steel and did not cover the weatherstripping completely.
Cheers, Jon

I believe they are the same as the S2 cars.

BINGO!!! Thanks! And that is a hell of a lot less expensive than Mr. Fiat! I have added this vendor to my list! Thanks again!
