Door sill plates and water

Hello,

Mine are starting to wrinkle and curl on the edges because the sill plates (which is just a thick vinal stick on) are outside the protected water seal around the door. So anytime it rains or I wash the car, it gets flooded inside there. I really thought that when I first heard about this, they would be metal of some sort.

Are the ones at this site metal or just the same?

There was a thread on how to use some tape to fix it. The tape they are using is failing.

Well it could be a glue. Anyway someone had posted the tape they used to fix it from coming off. I think it's 3M VHB.

Take it to the dealer and get them replaced. They should be covered under the warranty.

Yea but if the glue is not changed it will just happen over again if they put the same thing back on.

I need to take mine in. My passenger side is lifting up, and if it happens again, I'll have it replaced again. Remember you have a 3yr/36k bumper to bumper warranty.

But you need to use the 3m VHB and NOT what they have been using.

Maybe buy the tape and let the dealer do the labor portion. Or you could ask them to buy the tape or maybe they would have some in the shop.

I thought the warranty was 5 years / 100,000 miles...

I purchased the reverse light case, SS badges, locking fuel door, and bow ties all in black from DefenderWorx and was at there shop yesterday for about two hours and man was I impressed!!

First off the pictures donít do the product justice, when you see the quality of the stuff itís just beyond what you would expect. For some reason I was expecting some cheesy product that I was going to feel dumb about buying but I was glad to be proven wrong. The front bow tie replacement alone was sturdier than the entire stock piece and it fits perfectly. Iíll post pictures once itís all done.

Second and what really got me was the customer service. I have been exchanging emails with Brian for a while and he always replied quickly and with a solution. I asked about install and he said no problem even offered to meet me by my work since he lives in the area and put on my fuel door. When I got to the shop everyone was very friendly they showed me the entire shop and never tried to rush me out or anything like that. They installed all my stuff and even said they would see what they could do on a few other things I wanted modified. I go to see all their products and compared them to the stock stuff, trust me you want some of their stuff especially the door sills, and they have a product that to me just looks a lot sturdier and that will last. For those of you waiting for the shift knob all I can say is you wonít be disappointed!! That thing is sick and fits your hand perfect.

I know by now it sounds like I work for the place but I just think when you get excellent service or really crappy service, you should share the experience. DefenderWorx is the real deal and I will be buying more of their products!

Thanks Brian, Alex and Alexís Mom (sorry didnít catch you name) for making me feel like a valued customer. The Camaros at the shop are also not done justice in pics those things are sick, canít wait until they are finished.

Keep it up guys!!

Are you retarded? Before you post again, please review your post for grammar and punctuation. Go back to Toyota land....
BTW, the Camaro is a MUSCLE CAR, not a sports car.

General Motors calls Gen 5 a 21ST Century Sports Car.

You will not find any material from the maker calling it a muscle car.

Get your facts right before you open your mouth.

I don't care what the marketing suits at GM want to call the 2010 Camaro, but a sports car it is not. Like the previous three F-bodies I have have owned, the 2010 doesn't handle nothing like a sports car should. That doesn't mean you can't modify it to handle better. I have driven real sports cars like a new Porsche cayman and Z06 corvette. These cars handle very well from the factory. I purchased my Camaro because I wanted a muscle car. Something that is very quick in a straight line. If I wanted a sports car I would have purchased something else. GM called it a "sports car" because it is more politically correct than "muscle car" in the green direction GM is going. Calling the new Camaro a sports car is like calling your 72 GTO a sports car. Not a good fit. If you purchased you Camaro thinking you're getting a 21st century sports car, I guess the GM marketing folks did a good job.

BTW, look up both terms http://www.merriam-webster.com/
