Just saw this on "side panel too short"

Looks like I need umber 12 (RHD,one)
Part curves from inner floor surface all the way to bottom lip ?
No sandwich only 2 parts not 3 ?

Original outer sill has an upper flat part which goes in to the floor making the whole sill a box. The side panel is welded onto the top of that.

You can find original sill panels but there are cheaper repros too. The repros dont have the flat part, but a piece of sheet metal can be welded on.

Thank you ZsZ.
Probably going to patch for now.
At least got an idea of how to lay floor in prep for a new outer sill.
