Sounds good matey.
Welding can be a bastard parts are cheap to get hold of its the labour charges it all depends how bad the sills are. On my previous R5 I had the full outer and inner sill replaced for 560 inc parts which I supplied.

Looking forward to seeing your pics matey

am in the middle of doing sills at the moment ollie just for my own satisfaction lol will get some pics for you soon ollie pal . and im not paying some third party idiot to do the work ,who doesnt care about my car so will be a1 when done
its in safe hands all welding and fab work will be a1 as my pal who does shell preparation is helping me do them ( he mainly does mk1 and 2 escort group 4 fabwork for a lot of the big cars that go over to ireland to compete his work is awesome
and yes its getting full genuine inners and outer sills as 10 yrs of ownership have taken there toll on the body but she will soon be as good as new and ready for you to collect .
i just hope you own her as long as i have and cherish her as much as i have over the years mate ......thats all and ill be happy as they are slowly getting rarer now phase 1,s and will be the ones collectors look for in the future , you only have to look at the rs scene to see this ,a mint s1 escort in concours nick should fetch 12000 wereas a s2 in same nick maybe 6-7000
phase 1,s were brought over in much fewer numbers hence will be more sought after

also if you want it painting before you collect this can be arranged for extra cost ollie phone me if needs be regards
