Replacing the Door Sill Scuff Plates

The door sill scuff plates get beat up quite a bit and you may want to refinish them or even replace them. I’ve wanted carbon fiber ones for a long time, and I’ve finally gotten them thanks to ECPS! The pair of carbon fiber door sill scuff plates from ECPS weigh 4 lbs less than the original aluminum ones from Aston Martin.
