Porsche 944 / 951 / 968 Custom Raw Aluminum Door Thresholds One Day Sale $69.99!!!!!!

Porsche 944 / 951 / 968 "Raw Aluminum" Door Thresholds

FS - One pair (1 - Left & 1 - Right) Custom Fabricated Heavy Gauge Aluminum replacement thresholds

Fitment: Guaranteed to fit: 85-1/2 or Later 944,951,968 (If your car is an “early model”) please consults photos and also this forum to see if they will fit.

Price: Raw Unfinished: $69.99+ $15.00 Shipping CONUS (+$35.00 Shipping to Canada)

International Shipping & Canada: I will ship to Canada and elsewhere for additional shipping charges.

Note: These thresholds are made of high quality heavy gauge aluminum and are pre-cut and bent to be an exact replacement. Some minor fitting may be required, but all the cuts are already made and the bend is already in place. Additionally, they come in "raw" aluminum which either can be polished, painted, powder coated or chromed to your taste and preference. Since this is a custom fabricated item, ask any questions prior to purchasing.

Facts: Similar thresholds were made and sold in the 80's and 90's by a now defunct aftermarket company and are now a NLA item. On rare occasions these highly sought after threshold become available and are sold via eBay and or the usual Porsche forums they normally sell for between $300 & $400. Please Search Door sills on this forum to confirm this.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Do these slip over the plastic pieces like the original aftermarket pieces, or are they replacements for the stock parts?
A: They are direct replacements and I am using 3M double sided tape (not included) to secure it.

Q: Are they difficult to install?
A: When I did a final fitment (see the last few pictures), I utilized two 2x4's to put a slight concave bow in mine (a byproduct of test fitting them prior to the final install). I also use a vice so I could perfectly dial in the rear angle to match my car and to accommodate the RCA Cables running to my AMP in the rear cargo area.

Q: How long do they take to install?
A: The total time I spent fitting them was less than 1/2 hour per side which I recommend you do this prior to either painting or having any other coating applied.

Q: It looks like you have slipped some covers over the edges? If so, is that something that ships with the pieces or just something you did on yours? Having the edges finished it a nice look.
A: I stopped by the Local Auto Parts store and picked up door edge molding and put it on and it really cleaned up the edge. Cost was $9.99 and it is not included.

Q: Looks like that one isn't sitting flush?
A: As for sitting flush against the floor, yes they will sit flush against the floor....but this is where the "minor fitting" comes in to play

Q: Do you guarantee them?
A: Yes, I guarantee that they are made of a heavy gauge Aluminum which will not ding once installed and that all of the necessary cuts and primary bend is in place (see photos below) and will accept returns if any of the above is not true when you receive the thresholds. Please note there is some "minor fitting" (see above) which comes in to play, which I cannot guarantee as each individual DIY skill levels are different….if you have a 924/944/951 or 968 this should be in the realm of your capabilities.

Q: Are you making a lot of money on us?
A: No….based on the time involved and the PM’s and questions to date….I won’t be switching to the 997 Forum any time soon. Simply passing along something I had fabricated to fellow ADDICTS.

*Please note the "Black Plastic" thresholds in the picture are for comparison purposes only and are not included in the sale. Additionally, the installed versions on my 951 have been polished and a clear coat has been applied which resulted in a “anodized look” finish.

I have a Pay Day coming up next Wednesday, the first - how do I order a set ? - do you take Pay Pal?

The only problem is the warranty for fitment sucks. What is the gauge of the material ?

Thanks

Looks nice,

How do they attach? Are there clips or does it need to be worked out by the user?

Thanks

Payment

I only take PayPAL......

They are a direct replacement with the cuts and bend in place.

I fitted mine in about 1/2 hour and the "work" to fit is fine tuning the bend which can be done with some two by fours.

I don't have the exact gauge.....but they are pretty rigid and will not bing or bend once installed.

As for a warranty....these are custom made...trust me I am not making a lot of money for my time.

Fitment

I am utilizing 3M double sided tape on my install, additionally they fit into the rear interior qtr panel as well.

Additionally I am using Loctite Spray Fabric Adhesive to hold the carpeting in place as an additonal measure.

Here are some photos of my personal set of thresholds polished and installed along with a set of Door Sills I bought off of Ebay from a fellow Rennlister.

The polishing took about an 2 hours...starting with 80 grit and finishing off with 1500 grit and a polishing wheel....with a final pass with "Brasso". I then rattlecan sprayed then with clear and was really happy with the finish and to my surprise really came close to matching my FUCHS.

Needless to say....I am happy with them and it really upgrades the entrance to the car.

Enjoy the interior "Porn"!!!!!!!!

Looks like there is a black molding under under the metal. IS that included with the door sills?

When I posted my first dry photo's over on the "other" forum someone commented and suggested to do that....I ran down to PEP BOYS (Local Auto Place) and bought the door edge trim for $9.99.

On a side note 1st pair sold and ships out tommorrow.

Hey, I just wanted to say I test-fitted my new sills last night and they're going to look great. I plan on polishing them before I install them, and maybe putting a Porsche script on them as well.

So, instead of fastening clips to secure the cover, you're using double sided tape? What do you do about the raised "studs" in the door frame area that are meant for the plastic retaining clips? Have you considered very hot climates and how tape would hold up to that environment?

To me, it kinda looks like a standard "U" channel piece with a few relief cuts and 1 bend - kind of a tough sell at $80.

Pauerman,

Great points...this past week here on the East Coast temperature hit 105*F which I think are similar temperatures to the "Valley of the Sun" and I had no issues as these sit flat along the threshold (just like to OE black plastic ones) and are secured in addition to the double sided tape by the interior rear quarter panels. If this is a concern for you, or anyone else you could simply use a sheet metal screws and utilize the lip / "raised stud" (which holds the OEM clips) to secure it.

As for comments about the price and material.....you are correct that you could fabricate and make these yourself....but factor in the time finding the material, measuring cutting,
tools needed to bend aluminum correctly, test fitting + your own personal time.......you will find the $89.00 is a steal and I'm not really making any money on this and just providing something I custom made for my car and is NLA available....you of all people should know this based on your comments on this board about the "merits/profit" of parting a car.

As I said in the orginal post in this thread......if you have any questions...feel free to PM me or post something on the thread.

Thanks for the 2x's TTT.

Scott
