Default New Bonneville sill plates

I have had a Set of Bonneville badges off a 92 that Givemebreak sent to me last year. I have painted and cleared them. I was going to put them on the C pillars but decided not to. so they have been sitting in my room. Had a idea the other day, why not the door seals??? I thought of the all the other cars that have door sill plates either aftermarket or factory that have the car'* name or something to dress it up.

so......

here we have the plain ole door sill plate


and now we have the new and improved Bonneville door sill plate








I think that it makes the bland area in the door a little more dressy

BonnevilleSEman- your more than welcome to do it you your car, along with everyone else, just remember who did it firse

Repin- they sit ontop of the black sill, I was worried about the clearance but there is more than enough even with the badge on top

Nice job with the butterfly clip!

I considered a project like this for my car, but clearance issues scared me out of the idea. Its a nice touch giving a 93 a "Classic" Bonneville feel (ie 87-91)

I guess i would only consider it if i could make it flush completely, but it'* a neat idea.

I do see a 3800 badge on your floor though.
